This “Tobey” Artist Series release is 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 26% Merlot. Sweet scents of toast and cherry fruit introduce a wine with exceptional detail and density. Its core of cherry fruit is highlighted with cinnamon and baking spices, and the finishing tannins are polished and precise. The elegance, persistence and sheer finesse of this wine is most impressive.
