40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. Drinks incredibly similar to Smith Haut Laffite.. toasty cedar and rock dust followed by baked plums, vanilla, and mocha. Pallet with well integrated tannins, Pauillac in feel, exhibiting notes of casis, bell pepper, dark dried cherries, mocha, and a delicious lingering finish. This is seriously over performing for $60. 94 points Wine Advocate - 2500 cases production winery between all of their wines, which is pretty small and totally worth it.

When in Rome (as they say) 75% Cab Franc, 25% Merlot. This needs air or you'll think it uninspiring (was best the next day). Violets and slight French oak nose. Smooth, clean blue fruits with tannins up front fading at mid palate. Med/short finish. Solid wine.
