Very smooth. Probably needs a couple more years in the cellar for the optimal pallet.

Had to try one off the truck,
Last Bottle sale for $30.00, winery $100.00.. bought 4 should of bought 6
With proper rest period easy 95-96.

Blend of 89% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, 1% merlot from Nuns Canyon (62%) and Hamel Family Ranch (38%). Interesting fermentation program: 52% stainless steel, 38% concrete tanks, 10% neutral French oak barrels. Aged 26 months in 66% new French oak, 34% once-used French oak.
