The round voluptuous entry offers a dark berry blend—boysenberry, currant, blackberry, dark cherry & hint of eucalyptus. Fine tannins while a brightness lifts the mid-palate and the lush flavors linger in the finish. Slightly restrained when first opened, the wine will blossom with decanting. 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot. Only 75 cases produced. Alc.14.4%
