All Cabernet Sauvignon, this is from Conner Lee and Stillwater Creek vineyard grapes, and aged for 27 months on 100% new French oak. Pretty flavors of berries and cherries, round and sweet, wrapped in smooth tannins and a pleasing caramel note. Just enough acid is there to balance out the ripe fruit.
