Winemaking is the combination of art and science, cooking and chemistry. Like a memorable meal, it's about the quality of the ingredients and interplay of flavors, textures and techniques. Cabernet is the dominant flavor and forms the mid-palate structure and the long finish. Merlot fills in the middle palate and gives it more nose. Cabernet Franc adds a chocolate like experience at the top of your palate. Malbec fills the lower back with blackberries. Petit Verdot adds a touch of spice. The blend is full bodied yet mellow.
