59% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 11% Carignan, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

A dark core of blackberry, plum, cassis, dried straw, and fine Italian leather introduce the 2020 Gold Digger. Earthier notes show up on the palate, with elements of black cherry, cured meats, olive tapenade, and pie spices. Chewy tannins and briny acidity power to the long, lingering finish.
