My Rating 87 Points.
Price $45.

Here’s to 350th Post…

Dark ruby in color with a light purple rim.

What a gorgeous nose with oak, blackberries, blueberries, cloves, licorice, earth, forest floor, spices and black pepper.

Full-bodied and smooth with medium acidity and great legs.

Fruity on the palate with cherries, blackberries, raspberries, earth, oak, licorice, spices, chocolate, cloves, minerals and peppercorn.

Long finish with full, round tannins and black pepper.

This gorgeous blend is great by itself or with a big steak. Nice now and well balanced. Will be even better in the next three years.

This is a single vineyard blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.

Grapes are grown at an altitude of 2100 feet and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
