From the Winery: A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 15% Sangiovese from Yakima valley vineyards, it is marked by a ripe body and a polished finish. The wine undergoes extended maceration to yield a big fleshy wine that can benefit from additional cellaring. It is aged in 100% new French Oak for 15 months and 9 months in bottle prior to release.
