Wine Enthusiast 87 points - Opening with perfumy aromatics amid a core of cassis liqueur, this is a nicely balanced, easy-to-drink Cab that has concentration and finesse. With smatterings of Merlot, Syrah and Mourvedre, it drinks well and will pair well, a serviceable choice for gatherings big and small. (Dec 2013)
This wine displays a deep purple hue, with scents and saddle. The palate is approachable and rich with dark cherry, berry and ripe plum flavors. The finish is long and elegant, paired with soft tannins.
|Wine maker notes
|We always strive to make balanced, sophisticated, yet approachable Bordeaux style blends with both our Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot offerings.
By blending a trilogy of grapes from where they grow best, referred to as ”Trois Cepages,” acknowledges my dedication to winemaking. These wines reflect the unique terroir of the Napa Valley and are traditionally blended together with Cabernet Franc and, at times, Petit Verdot.
