The different varietals and mountain and valley floor sites give it great personality. The Atlas Peak fruit delivers structure and the valley floor serves up full flavors of dark fruit and black berries, including notes of cedar and sage.
Final blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah and 22% Merlot.
