A blend of 63% Merlot, 31% Cabernet Franc and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyards for this red blend stretch from Coombsville to Stagecoach. That span provides the wine with both toasty oak and juicy, soft, dusty black cherry and berry fruit. On the nose, it's classic Cab Sauvignon, all black currant and clove.
