Almost entirely Cabernet Sauvignon, with 9% Petit Verdot, this wine spent two years in barrel. There's a lightness of being to the overall texture and flavor, a high-toned sensibility that remains lively and fresh on the palate. Cranberry, black cherry, clove and cigar have had time to intermingle and accent the velvety tannins.
