The color of this red blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep ruby red with highlights of violet blue on the edges. The aromas are reserved at first, but blossom into an exotic mix of bright cherry, black currant, spice and herbs layered with a hint of creamy vanilla. The palate teases with the similar cherry and currant flavors then bursts into a broad and mouth filling wine that is elegant and focused from the beginning to the finish.
Decant prior to drinking.
94 points “Editors Choice”, Wine Enthusiast (10/10): “…a big, elaborate wine, the kind that feels lush and important in the mouth…lighter and more elegant than a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon…extraordinarily rich…Pricey, but unique and worth it…”
92 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (4/10): “This deep and multi-layered wine is very true in its aim of mimicking the bottlings of St. Emilion, and, while it comes with a certain West Coast richness, it is very claret-like in construction and nuance."
A mere 245 cases were made.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
