My Rating 88 Points.
Beautiful ruby in color with a light ruby rim.
Intense nose of blueberries, blackberries, cherries, raspberries, earth, plums, licorice, oak, vanilla, wildflowers, red candy, earth, leather and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, raspberries, light oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices and black pepper.
Medium plus on the finish with round tannins.
A nice blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, 51% from Sonoma County and 49% from Napa County.
Complex and interesting by itself, but a good food wine, too. Well balanced and enjoyable. I paired it with a platter of hard cheeses and dried fruits.
14.1% alcohol by volume.
