Mostly Cabernet, with some Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cab Franc, the wine is sweet, spicy and oak layered. It's like a fruit pie, yet with some robust edges. Deep colored with lively fruit, it almost bursts from the glass. Chocolaty, tarry notes. Definitely the “Cal” part of any Cal-Ital notions for this new line of wines.
