About

92

"Deep ruby color; smooth, bright, and softly tannic with deep berry fruit, plum, and hints of spice; restrained and pretty."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"One of Elliott Dolin's first attempts at a red blend from this coastal appellation, this blend of 42% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Syrah and 9% Petit Verdot offers an elegant nose of elderflower, dried blueberry, black pepper, oregano and crushed gravel minerality. It's dense and bone-dry on the palate, its concentrated lilac, violet and blueberry syrup flavors framed by chalky tannins. -MK"

Product Description:

This Bordeaux style blend, based with Cabernet Franc is a classic California style wine. While the natural earth tones of Cabernet Franc come through, the ripeness keeps it fruit forward. This is a beautiful wine that can be saved for the next 5 to 10 years.
