This is the top wine that Duckhorn makes. It is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby in color. The nose has black cherries, cassis, spice and slight chocolate. On the palate, this has a lovely texture. It is not a monster wine, but has a nice elegance to it. It is younger-ish with firm tannins. Lots of black cherry fruit with some underlying sandalwood and slight forest floor. Good finish. This will work well on its own but also with a wide variety of meats and fowl. It should be close to peak but should be here for at least another decade or more.
