Winemaker's Notes:

Ultra purple in color, this proprietary red blend offers complex aromas of wild berries, camphor and violet blossoms.

The’09 is a blend of 50% blockbuster Petite Sirah, 37% super-ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% ripe and round Merlot.

A bit youthfully monolithic but has the energy and building tannins to support some aging...90" IWC 06/12
