A blend of about 85% Cab Sauvignon with the rest Cab Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot & Petite Sirah, aromas of dark red fruits and some earthy herb spices. The palate shows blackberry with pungent oaky tomato leaf herb spice. Tannins are biting that stick, leaving a medium finish ending spicy. Just ok. Tasting Sample.

Very solid. Incredibly smooth drinking with an explosion of flavor on the finish. Strong characteristics l but balanced tannins and acidity, no unpleasant flaover or qualities. This is a good representation of the variety.

A little tarte, though improves after a few sips. Good but not great. For the price point (~$25), wouldn’t necessarily rush to buy again. Better off with the Pinot Noir from this vineyard.

Cocoa, coffee, black cherry, and some dusty cedar notes. Well balanced with plenty of depth. A bit sweet overall, but rather lovely.
