Review

Medium to dark garnet in color, this wine smells of cherry and tobacco leaf and cola. In the mouth, cherry cola and cocoa powder mix with boysenberry and a faint hint of citrus peel. Muscular tannins emerge on the finish. Good acidity and length. A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 8% Syrah, and 2% Petit Verdot.
