"A wine with the instinctive elegance of the involuntary and the comforting strength of commitment. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot shows balance, full flavor and goes as well with a casual weekday dinner as it does with a highly anticipated special occasion. With such great fruit coming out of our vineyards this year, we just couldn’t help but spread the wealth."
This red casts a deep young claret robe and Cab Franc-driven aromas of cassis, tobacco, dried herbs, and dusty soil. Propelled by cedary Cabernet Sauvignon fruit and plummy, chocolatey Merlot, the wine achieves a wonderful harmony on the palate thanks to refreshing acidity and plentiful soft tannins. Reprises of red and black fruits carry through to the back-palate and segue the wine to a long, delicious, Right Bank-inspired finish. Enjoy the wine now and over the coming five years by itself or with roast lamb or beef, eggplant parmigiana, and recipes spotlighting spring morel mushrooms.
