Presenting a deep cherry color, it combines the best of the varietals from the estate. It has an extremely intense, elegant, and expansive nose combined with complex aromas of blackberries, boysenberries, vanilla bean, plums, and figs. Powerful on the palate, with an excellent tannic structure, substantial flavors of ripe fruits and wild berries and a lingering finish. Great served with venison bolognese sauces, salpicón, smoked ribs, and osso bucco.

Wine EnthusiastThis blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Syrah initially smells cool and earthy, then more woody, spicy and animal-like. On the palate, this is concentrated and deep, with milder tannins than the winery's varietal Petit Verdot. Flavors of blackberry and cassis are powerful, while burnt wood, bitter chocolate and peppery flavors drive a muscular finish. Drink now through 2020.

Wine SpectatorThick and dense, this ripe red offers coffee, plum, licorice and light earthy flavors. The tannins are a bit chewy, the acidity a bit soft, leaving this rich wine slightly heavy on the palate. Drink now through 2017. 1,520 cases made.
