Dark, sleek cassis fruit, ripe and layered, with notes of tobacco leaf, coffee bean, mocha and dried violet. Pretty, floral palate with a slightly smoky character. Ripe tannins, refreshing acidity and lovely eucalyptus and menthol on the lingering finish. A great example of the power and freshness of Cabernet Sauvignon. Plenty of time ahead. Blend : 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec

This wine opens with ripe red fruit, black pepper, and anise leading to notes of dried flowers, currants, and blackberries. Those flavors carry through on the full-bodied palate, which is supported by polished tannins and a lengthy finish. Though approachable now, this wine will continue to develop and evolve over the next decade.
This wine pairs exceptionally well with dishes that include black pepper or thyme. These ingredients lift the flavors of our Signature Cabernet Sauvignon. Winery Chef Chris Kennedy suggests pairing with with prime rib with herb and garlic crust.
