The fruit is left on the vines long beyond traditional periods, allowing the intense flavors that characterize the wine to develop. In true boutique style, only the highest quality fruit is selected for harvest. “This wine has a dark plum color with a slight crimson hue. It showcases aromas of ripe blackberries, vanilla and dark chocolate leading into a palate packed with riveting flavors of black cherry, red plums, and ripe strawberries. With a solid-built frame of tannin and crisp acid, the wine manages to find balance with the equitable amount of plush texture.” – from the winery. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
