    Winemaker's Notes:

    Generous aromas of blackberry and cassis with wisps of violets. Dense, vibrant flavors of polished black fruit, including black currant and blackberries, loaded with deep dark chocolate and a touch of graphite. Concentrated and lush on the palate, with opulent fruit, excellent weight and beautifully integrated oak notes. Bright natural acidity and structured tannins enhance exceptionally long finish. Delicious upon release; optimal cellaring time 5 to 15 years from vintage.

    Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5 % Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 1% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Most of this wine comes from the Bundschu’s Rhinefarm Estate at the foot of the Mayacamas, blended with 10 percent from higher elevations. It grows in volcanic ash and alluvial soils eight miles north of San Pablo Bay, yielding an intriguing wine that tastes like something more than simple plummy fruit. Savory scents of mint and rose add layers to the red earth notes in the tannins. The wine has shape and direction, setting it up for aging.
