The palate shows tart red fruit that’s a bit strawberry toned in a generally earthy style. 86pts

Deceptively sweet aromas of strawberries, raspberries and rose petals. The flavors are dark, rich, lusciously mouthwatering, with cherries, boysenberries, tart plum skins, hints of leather, sweet pipe tobacco, and coffee beans. The tannins are firm, but not a bit edgy and the finish lingers with just a touch of anise. A truly lovely vintage. - WineryBlend:• 22% Cabernet Sauvignon• 24% Syrah• 26% Merlot• 10% Cabernet Franc• 5% Malbec• 6% Sangiovese• 3% Zinfandel• 1% Petit Verdot• 1% Carmenere• 1 % Grenache and 1%CounoiseCooperage: The wine is on 40% new oak barrels, mostly French and American oak with a compliment of Eastern European oak for 16 months.pH: 3.72TA: 0.57Alcohol: 13.8%
