A complete wine - big and rich with a balance of power and finesse and a smooth, silky texture. Surprisingly integrated for a young wine. Aroma: Forward bouquet of black fruit and rich cherry, interlaced with mocha, sweet herbs (sage), toffee and spice. Offers the promise of deep fruit and further complexity. Mouth Feel: Central core of powerful and concentrated fruit, spreading over the palate to reveal layers of ripe blackcherry, currant, anise, and coffee. Delicious, long finish continues to reveal deep, mixed dark fruit and subtle oak.

Wine SpectatorLots to admire in this ripe, complex young wine, as it presents a rich array of plum, blackberry, toasty mocha-laced oak and a firm yet creamy texture before ending with chewy tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2005 through 2012. 3,400 cases made.
