From vineyards on Diamond Mountain as well as Atlas Peak and Calistoga, this majority Cabernet employs 7% Petit Verdot, giving it a tad more weight and tannin. It otherwise is a high-toned and herbal wine, offering a taste of black tea amid chocolate and black cherry, finishing in fine-grained tannin and oak.
