The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep ruby in appearance. This wine has concentrated ripe cherry, black currant and plum aromas interlaced with complex notes of dark chocolate, clove and toasty oak and build a complementary blend of enticing aromas.

Blend: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Petite Verdot, 1% Malbec, and 1% Syrah
