    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1987 vintage of this wine was ranked #8 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1991

    The deep garnet color of this wine hints at the big extraction and dark flavors to follow. Very rich aromas of pipe tobacco, chocolate and caramel beautifully complement the black currant and ripe black cherry fruit. The palate opens soft but builds big and fast, showing a great acid backbone, moderate weight tannins, and a mouthfeel that is full but not heavy or overwhelming. Rich, ripe, sweet black cherry dominates the fruit and is nicely complemented with plum and red berry high tones. Barrel spice is prominent on the finish.

    Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc
