This is a wine that shows the artistry of blending five Bordeaux-heritage grape varieties, which contribute layer-upon-layer of flavor complexity. Cabernet Sauvignon gives this wine its generous core of briary blackberry and cassis expression, while the blend of reserve blocks from Rutherford and floral Stags Leap Ava give broad nuances of violet and wild sage. A fantastic wine at a great price.

James Suckling

A tight and deep wine with a beautiful center palate of currants, berries, lemon rind and silky tannins. Rich and opulent, yet fresh. Lightly chewy with a caressing texture. 78% cabernet sauvignon and 11% merlot with malbec, petit verdot and cabernet franc.

Wine Enthusiast

This blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc is thick and leathery in style. It has full-bodied richness in flavors of dark chocolate and blackberry that work well alongside firm tannins and integrated oak. *Cellar Selection* (VB)
