60% Cabernet sauvignon
This wine is exciting from the moment it livens up your glass with brilliant ruby color and sapphire undertones. The fragrant nose has mocha java cocoa powder, toasted vanilla, and rich dark fruit with a hint of lavender. Vigorous and long with great depth, this wine is densely layered with flavors of cassis, bittersweet chocolate shavings, blackberry fruit, burnt sugar, subtle cedar and a final zest of kumquat. This iconoclastic wine is forward and expressive, with an edgy newness. It blends the best of both worlds: the cabernet component is present in the structure and tannins and intense dark fruit, providing a dramatic frame for the exuberant, lush zinfandel component. The result is a vivacious yet seamlessly balanced wine that delivers a unique palate experience.
