“The aromas of dark berries and barrel spice are dense and brooding, with herb notes providing accents. The flavors are sweet, rich and full, showing depth, generosity and length. The oak is a bit prominent but it still delivers a lot of enjoyment.” -September 2016

“Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) makes up the majority of this wine along with Merlot (23%), Malbec (5%) and Petit Verdot. It’s aromatically brooding, with notes of black fruit, toffee, moist soil and a floral top note.
