Tasting Notes:

Fully developed varietal flavors, admirable concentration and freshness and a fine, textural quality are the hallmarks of the unusually cool, extended 2010 growing season. Vivid blackberry and blueberry fruits are supported by firm, ripe tannins, then finish with savory layers of earth, soy and Herbs de Provence. Higher portions of Mt. Veeder Merlot and Cabernet Franc bring succulence, composure and complexity to the blend, while cellaring will further integrate the spicy oak elements of espresso, nutmeg and sandalwood.
