Country: USA, Napa Valley
Tasting Notes: As it evolves in the glass, this graceful and inviting wine reveals a dazzling array of aromas from cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel and cocoa powder to fresh boysenberry, currant and ripe red plum. The flavors are every bit as complex as the aromas, with layers of blackberry, plum, licorice, vanilla and violet accentuated by elegant tannins and a plush, velvety texture. The finish is long and satisfying, with a hint of dusty tannins and bittersweet dark chocolate.
Varietal: Blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
