Wine Advocate - 91 Points
Region: California, USA
Appellation: Napa Valley
Varietal: Red Blend - 68% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Alc %: 12.5%
Made in a refined, right bank style, Merlot dominates the blend and the firm structure begs for food. The nose is boisterous and complex with black cherry compote, blackberry and a bit of cocoa and coffee as it opens. The palate is well balanced, with a zesty stone fruit acidity and supple texture, layers of cherries, cassis and baking spice with more subtle, oak influenced notes developing with air. Perfect with beef, veal, chips, or duck bread.
