Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Merlot are all represented in this estate blend that is both brawny and intensely savory. Black pepper and pencil shavings support a tightness of grippy tannin and integrated oak, allowing for only the slightest inkling of fruit in the form of baked plum. This will best be enjoyed 2020–2023.
