This is the signature wine, a field blend wine that is a precise representation of the grapes planted in the estate vineyard, in exact proportion: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 6% Malbec. Muscular and rich with dark fruits, cocoa, coffee, chocolate, fresh herbs and a streak of mineral, this is detailed, dense and compelling. Should age for a decade or more.
