This is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah from Sonoma County. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black cherries, black raspberries, slight vanilla, spice, leather and char. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, this took about 30 minutes to open and then drank quite well. Nice black cherry fruit with some black raspberries along with a bit if spice and slight cedar note. There is some depth as it opens in the glass. Nice finish. This drinks well on its own and will work well with meats and chicken. It went well with a Veggie Burger. Drink over the next ten years. A very nice value for a California Cabernet.
