  • Tasting Notes

    • The aromas of this wine are very classic Napa Valley, seducing you with notes of blackberry, bay laurel, cocoa and dusty plum. The pallet is expansive throughout with mouth-watering flavors of black plum, mushroom, chocolate and savory hints of bay leaf. The wine fills the mouth with richness, fruit, a bright acidity and just enough natural grape and oak tannin to lengthen the wine into a great lingering aftertaste. The use of four Bordeaux varietals adds to the complexity, depth and interest of this finely crafted Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
