This vibrantly light, restrained wine comes from some hallowed vineyards, including Hudson, Stagecoach and Crocker & Starr, the blend comprised of 38% Cabernet Franc, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot. Dark in color, it offers aromas of cherry liqueur and orange, and remains dry on the palate, low in power and high in minerality.
