|Visually stunning with a deep garnet-ruby hue, this wine possesses an unprecedented elegance of fruit expression, lively acidity, tannin structure and oak integration. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and cassis are supported by subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla from oak aging. The mouthfeel is soft, silky and robing with a seemingly neverending finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2025. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.
The incredible balance of acidity, varietal fruit character, silky tannin structure and restrained alcohol makes this vintage unparalleled in its versatility on the dinner table. It carries the depth and body to hold up to a marbled rib-eye and the finesse and elegance to gracefully accompany the leaner filet mignon. Grilled, braised or roasted, lamb, venison, pork, chicken and duck also make for perfect pairing material—the possibilities are only limited by the imagination.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
