Review

Excellent Cab blend: fleshy in texture, complex in flavor, and full bodied; an appealing, balanced wine with a long finish, tasting of black currant, cherry, cassis, herbs, toast, and spicy oak. Fine value. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 2% Malbec, 2% Syrah, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Aged 12 months in French and American oak barrels, 12% new. 14.5%
