This wine jumps out of the glass with aromas of fresh black cherry and plum. Layers of savory cherry compote, earth, cedar, and graphite are rounded out by a long finish with hints of dark chocolate, balanced acidity, and minerality.
Blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, this full-bodied, highly expressive red is made from Coombsville estate grapes as well as grapes from sites in Rutherford and Oakville. It presents concentrated, burly black-fruit notes tempered by savory clove, espresso, leather, and toasted oak. 92 WE
