Opaque in color and manner, this wine benefits from the 5% addition of Malbec, a speciality of the producer. Juicy blue and black fruit intermix around a touch of milk chocolate, with smooth tannins and well-integrated oak. This is a classically styled wine balanced against a richness of California fruit.
