Bordeaux meets Napa Valley. Although varietally Cabernet Sauvignon, this unusual wine is a Bordeaux-style blend that is composed of three varietals; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Flinty mineral notes combine with hints of black rose and vanilla.

Many of the lots were punch cap fermented in one ton bins between 7-11 days. Small lots were tank fermented. Each was barrel aged separately in predominantly French oak for 32 months. They were selected, blended and racked before bottling. The wine is unfined.

Reviews:

"A little minty, with a clove and pepper edge to the black currant, carob and cedar flavors, but nice and dry, with a firm structure. Doesn’t seem like an ager. — S.H. (12/1/2008)" -Rated 86, Wine Enthusiast
