    Winemaker's Notes:

    This blend of the five noble Bordeaux varietals is deep, rich and concentrated. Initial aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper arise from the glass. On the palate, the wine has wonderful texture and length. Cassis and plum mingle with the toasty oak nuances and vanilla characters creating a harmonious blend. The finish is long and sophisticated with the tannin structure playing a pivotal role in the wine's balance and finesse.

    Blend: 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 14% Malbec, 6% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe black cherry scents add to this wine's intensity, as does the black, smoky character of its oak. The dark flavors last, lightened by floral notes and pepper. This will benefit from a year or two in the cellar.
