The blend was aged in a mix of French and American oak, imparting complexity and texture to the finished wine.
A deep red, nearly purple color, with aromatics of concentrated black fruits, cigar box and notes of barrel toast. Dark fruit, spice and rich flavors continue on the palate. Quite brooding, but pure and focused. The tannins are super integrated and soft, but with terrific balance and finish that gives it unusual length in the palate.
Our goal was to blend coastal fruit from the North Coast and Central Coast with Cabernet grapes from the inland, and warmer, Lodi region.
