Natalie's Score: 93/100

This wine is a blend of 58% cabernet sauvignon and 42% merlot. It offers a windy tunnel of mint-blackberry aromas that whistle up from the glass. Full-bodied and ultra-concentrated: a true red for hedonists. Cabernet Merlot food pairings: prime rib.

Deep ruby. Black raspberry and cola on the nose, made more complex by notes of vanilla, pipe tobacco and cracked pepper. Firm, mineral-accented red and dark berry and bitter cherry flavors become sweeter with air and pick up a suggestion of mint. Sweet and focused on the finish, which repeats the vanilla and cherry notes. This wine is made from the younger vines of the Monte Bello vineyard.
