A late release from this cool vintage, this wine is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It explores Cabernet's greener side, with aromas of jalapeño and bell peppers, green herbs and cherry. The tart cherry and pepper flavors are elegantly styled, backed by light baking spice and vanilla accents.
