rich black cherry fruit aromas, with hints of
eucalyptus and oak.


Addition of Syrah brings depth of fruit to the nose and palate,
while the addition of Cabernet sauvignon adds structure to the finish. Soft tannins
balance well with good fruit acidity and concentrated fruit flavors to yield a wine
that will develop well with several years of aging. A rich, concentrated Merlot with
a lingering finish and supple mouthfeel.
