Exemplifying our intent to showcase varietal characteristics, the results are rather delicious in this Cabernet Sauvignon with 13% Syrah blended in. This wine starts with whiffs of chocolate muffin cake, coffee, plums, watermelon and toasted oak. In the mouth are flavors of rich black cherries, black currants, oak, chocolate and tea. There's a bit of sweetness between the midpalate, and firm tannins and vanilla notes on the finish. ~125 cases made.
