Sonoma County mountain and hillside vineyards add black cherry flavors and superb wine structure. Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are blended with Merlot for softness, Cabernet Franc for tannins, Malbec for a hint of chocolate and complexity, and Petit Verdot to enhance the mouthfeel. The coolness of the 2011 vintage enhances the elegance.
