This wine is a Bordeaux blend with a California attitude. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot sourced from estate vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino counties combine to create a wine with great balance and structure. Full and rich, this blend has smoky earthy character with soft tannins and a persistent finish of black currant and licorice. Herbal notes with hints of black olive are evident in the bouquet. This wine can be enjoyed now or will age well and continue to develop in the bottle over the next few years. Pairs well with pasta and rich Italian tomato based dishes.
