Jeb Dunnuck

A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2018 The Mark reveals a vivid purple color to go with full-bodied aromas and flavors of assorted dark fruits (blackberries, cassis), toasted spices, graphite, and scorched earth. It’s full-bodied, dense, and unevolved, yet loaded with potential. Hide bottles for 4-5 years.
