From three of the winery's heritage vine- yardsMt. George in Coombsville; Silverado Vineyard; and Oakville Station, a historic site overseen by UC Davisthis melodic red (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and 1% Cab Franc) aged 18 months in 48% new oak (mostly French, with a smaller percentage of Hungarian and American). Following a perfume of mountain brush, dried violets, blackberry, and slate, the palate makes a bold and elegant state- ment; its reserved power and beauty show in notes of spiced cedar, sweet tobacco, and a melange of Italian herbseasoned blue, red, and black fruit.
Wine Tasting Notes
Aromas of Linzer cookies and savory herbs. A fresh, clean palate with flavors of dark cherry cola, black raspberry, and hints of sweet tobacco. Full-bodied and smooth with a lingering berry finish
