A smidgen of Cabernet Franc is blended into this wine, the grapes sourced from vineyards on both Diamond and Howell mountains. Ripe raspberry and cassis compote give it a juicy expansiveness on the midpalate, before finishing accented in cedar and pencil shavings within a complex wave of dry tannin.
