Elegant, with layers of currant, mocha and blackberry. Firms up in the mid palate and has a long silky finish with some tannins in the background. Drinks well now, but should age gracefully for the next 10 to 15 years.”- Marco DiGiulio Parker, 94 points / Wine Spectator, 92 points Production Notes Blend: 54% Cabernet, 23% Merlot, 14% Petit Verdot, 9% Cabernet Franc Tons per acre: 2.5 to 3.75 Number of cases: 600 Barrel Aging: 24 months in French Oak – 80% new barrels Brix it was picked at: 23.4 to 25.6 Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
