The inaugural release of this top-echelon Cabernet Sauvignon for the winery, it delivers in spicy black clove and berry encased around barrel toast and mocha. A Napa Valley Cabernet, blended with 11% Merlot, it features seamless, silky tannins. The wine's overall imprint is soft, supple and restrained, with a long, lingering finish.
