Coming from one of the state's top vineyards, this wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (78%), Cabernet Franc (10%), 7% Petit Verdot and Merlot. The aromas are tightly wound on first pour, with pleasing notes of red and black fruit, along with plum, mocha, herb, flower and spice. The flavors are pitch black, soft and silky in feel with highly structured, ever so slightly dry tannins that smooth out with some time open. This one needs additional time. Best after 2021.
