Black cherry, cassis, cedar and oak aromas surround tobacco in this full-bodied Cabernet.
Concentrated red and black fruit flavors. Firm, silky tannins and a toasty, caramel finish makes this blend enjoyable now, as well as in the future.
The grapes were harvested in early September.
The wine was bottled in May 1999, without fining or filtration.
Pumped over traditionally and macerated on skins for 20-27 days. The wine was pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation.
