On the nose, sweet red plums and Bing cherries meet savory notes of tamari, black pepper and tomato confit. On the palate, sweet fruit leads, followed by more savory, salty note—a touch of bacon and dried sage. Lively acidity lifts the wine, but there is a layer of rich creaminess here as well that carries through to the finish.
The blend of this wine consist of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 17% Petit Verdot, 11% Merlot, and 5% Malbec.
