"This weighty wine has small percentages of Petit Verdot, Petite Syrah, Merlot and Zinfandel, contributing to robust and impactful tannins and ripe fruit. Juicy and approachable on the palate, it highlights touches of tar and clove." (WE)

Winery Notes:
A long and warm growing season allowed the grapes to manifest dark fruits flavors. Infrequent heat spikes softened the traditionally firm and structured tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon. The warm season balanced by night time fog and cool Napa Valley nights, calmed the ripening process and instilled a unique blend of tannin and fruit which inspired a rich background of deep exotic spices.
