Is there anything NOT in here? 59% Cabernet, 10% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot, 8% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petite Sirah and 2% Tannat. Can smell the Cab Franc and Cabernet in herbal and pencil lead notes. Fine grained tannins and drying finish. Plum and blackberry flavors and aromas that are very smooth. Good with roast beef. Well made, but the sheer number of blends keeps this from being distinctive.

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were hand-harvested at optimal ripeness, for a balance of dark, sweet fruit and mature, supple tannins. The grapes were then crushed and cold soaked for 3-5 days to maximize flavor and color extraction, then pressed just prior to completing fermentation, emphasizing forward fruit characteristics. The wine was aged in a mix of French,American, and Hungarian oak barrels for 20 month.

Tasting Notes:

The Blackstone 2006 Sonoma Reserve Rubric exhibits a dark, inky black hue, displaying aromas of black cherry, blackberry jam, cassis, cigar box, and coffee, with a hint of toasted spice. This stunning blend carries layered flavors of ripe, jammy black fruit with undercurrents of caramel, vanilla, coffee, and varietal herbaceousness. This is a concentrated wine with a rich mouthfeel and silky texture. Fine, supple tannins provide a lingering finish perfect for pairing with braised short ribs, herb-coated lamb, or dark chocolate soufflé.
