The color is deep, dark ruby with reddish hues, quite opaque. The aroma is rich in dark cherry, plum and boysenberry, with aromatic cedar, juniper berry, vanilla and milk chocolate. The palate has bright cherry fruit and Santa Rosa plum, which lingers with great balance of acidity and fruit. The tannins are very soft and velvety.
A blend of grapes coming from local mountain vineyards as well as the Napa Valley floor. The rich texture conveys vivid fruit and mocha flavors through a long finish. Ages in a combination of small French and American oak barrels.
