    Winemaker's Notes:

    Living up to its name, our 2009 Platinum is the culmination of our finest grapes and state-of-the-art winemaking. Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, this classic Bordeaux-style blend has a big, inky-black profile led by distinct aromas of cocoa, espresso, toast and black currant. A bold weight of black-cherry fruit washes across the palate with unrelenting intensity. Mouth-coating tannins and caramel pastry notes extend into a long and satisfying finish.

    Pair this striking bold, well-balanced wine with roasted meats, risotto, or winter pastas.

    Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is soft, ripe and delicious, in the cult style, with heady blackberry jam, chocolate and sweet, caramelized oak flavors. It’s thoroughly dry and really easy to like, with a certain dramatic impact. Drink soon.
