Winemaker's Description: Opens with rich scents of black fruit and cedar. This wine is fruit-forward with intense cassis, plum and blackberry flavors, it's balanced with notes of tobacco, spice, and a solid structure for length on the palate, finishing with a touch of dark chocolate. 20 months in 30% new and 70% once and twice-filled French oak barrels.
Blend: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
