This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (51%), Merlot (49%) offers pleasant aromas of dark berries and plums. It's supple with a medium- to full-bodied weight. It was aged in French oak for 12 months.

Reviews and Ratings

This classic wine blend delivers flavors of currants, dark cherries, blackberry and smooth lingering finish. Secondary flavors and aromas of some dried herb and a touch of oak.
Individual parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were harvested and fermented cool and gently extracted to retain fruit expression and soft tannins. The wines were then pressed off skins and run into French oak to undergo malolactic fermentation and maturation for 12 months. Individual barrel selections were then blended together. Cabernet Sauvignon gives structure and red berry fruit while the Merlot provides mid palate weight and texture to the wine.
