Alcohol/vol 15.5%

An alluring hue of dark garnet sits in the glass, encircled by a glowing ruby rim. Immediate aromas of ripe black cherry, blueberry and classic cassis are supported by undertones of lavender, jasmine, sage, tobacco, cigar box and the slightest touch of anise. Rich and vibrant upon entry, flavors of dark plums, figs and black fruit transform into sweet vanilla and dark chocolate framed by velvety and plush tannins. The wine finishes with great length and a touch of acidity—an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from select vineyards in the Napa Valley.

Lightly floral, with plum, lavender, currant and blackberry notes. Lively and spicy, veering toward a more tannic presence but not at the expense of pure, lively flavors. Ends with a gravelly aftertaste. Drink now through 2026. 5,000 cases made.
