Starts out black and inky, with the ashy, charry aroma that 100% new French oak brings to the tease of blackberry fruit. In the mouth, this is a very soft, almost sweet Cab, with the flavors of candied blackberries, caramelly peanut brittle, chocolate fudge and crème de cassis. It's so rich and exotic, it's almost obvious. Made by Helen Turley in the international style, huge and seductive. The estate vineyard is in Yountville, next to Dominus.
