Deep ruby color. Aromas of roasted peppers, cassis pie, and chocolate with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a tangy, blood orange, spice, and sour cherry accented finish. A nicely balanced and fruit forward cabernet that covers a lot of bases. (tasted on Sep-13-2013)
"Grapes from Lodi, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara and Monterey. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, aged in French oak for approximately 9 months. Drinks of cherries, black currants and boysenberry jam with herbal spice. A splash of Merlot and Zinfandel bumps up the fruit flavors and keeps it easy drinking. Medium bodied with surprising richness" -Winery
