A very pretty, classically styled Sonoma Cabernet. This is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, and 2% Merlot. Purple in color with some purple swirls. The nose has cassis, black cherries, tobacco, slight bell pepper and spice. On the palate, this is full bodied with medium tannins. Cassis with a nice underlying earthiness/forest floor. Good balance. Ripe but not over blown by any means. This should drink well for the next fifteen years as it develops and matures. Drinking great on its own, this will work well with roasts or casseroles.
