Enticing aromas of cocoa, mocha, and juicy blackberries intrigue the senses and jump out of the glass with this beautiful, dark Cabernet Sauvignon. While flavors of black cherry, cassis, plum, and savory baking spices delight the palate, the soft, rich mouthfeel and supple tannins carry through to a lengthy finish. Bold and elegant, this wine is perfect for all occasions.
Vineyards located on the mountains, including the distinguished Atlas Peak and Howell Mountain, bring bright acidity, rich tannins and powerful berry, cherry and herbaceous notes. The Rutherford fruit imparts intense cherry, cassis and violet notes, along with crisp acidity and firm tannins. The vineyards on the more fertile valley floor provide ripe, juicy fruit notes and fleshy tannins.
