96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot.

Nearly opaque in the glass this wine offers classy aromas of cassis, iris, leather, graphite, and dust resting on a wood floor. Rich flavors of blueberry, mocha, mint, and cardamom evolve into round, yet slightly grainy tannins. The epic palate offers layers of cocoa and earthy notes on the long luxurious finish. This is a great wine to enjoy now with a meal or lay down for the next decade. 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot.
