This blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot includes fruit from five Walla Walla Valley vineyards. It shows plenty of muscle and bigger, rounder fruit than the single-vineyard Cabernet from Tero. Loaded with lush cherry and plum flavor, with a milk chocolate accent, it's very appealing, nicely balanced and lingering.
