The blend is 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Syrah, and 20% Merlot, delivering pure fruit flavors of black raspberry, blackberry and cassis. Sourced from young vines, and mostly Red Mountain vineyards, despite the Columbia valley label. Succulent and brambly, with dusty tannins and a finish with dark coffee flavors.
