A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc aged in 65% new French oak, it boasts a deep purple color as well as a forward, sexy perfume of crème de cassis, blueberries, violets, and flowers. It’s a full-bodied, pleasure-bent effort that has loads to love.

A balanced and silky red with a dusty texture and plenty of dark fruit and chocolate undertones. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish.

Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. A blend of 90% cabernet sauvignon and 10% cabernet franc. Very attractive now but better in 2020.

Easy to like, offering an introduction of creamy oak and berry flavors, yet this quickly firms and flexes tannic strength, ending dry, savory and chewy. Best from 2019 through 2030. 800 cases made. — JL
