The BSH blend is two thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, the rest a mix of Bordeaux blend grapes. The Cab is definitely in the driver's seat, pushing out flavors of cherry/berry and whiffs of straw and cooked plum. It's consistent with the ripe, somewhat volatile house style, but offering smooth, well-integrated flavors and subtle use of new oak.
