Sipping Fine Wine

A blend of 89% Cab Sauv, 6% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot & 2% Cab Franc, from Martin Stelling Vineyard, planted on gravelly loam soil, aged 17 mos in French oak, 68% new. Dark Ruby with aromas of black and dried red fruits, toasty herbs and earthiness. On the palate blackberry, black cherry and cassis with vanilla, cacao and espresso. Well balanced, fine tannins, a touch of toasty oak carrying this wine to a long finish, and room to age. Tasting Sample!

Lots of dark fruit, leathery and maybe some tobacco etc… deep with nice tannins, would have liked a longer finish
