A blend of 84 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 9 percent Merlot, and 4 percent each Malbec and Petite Sirah, the 2000 vintage was blessed with moderate weather which contributed to the slow, even-ripening of the grapes. Aromas of ripe black cherry and raspberry with nuances of cedar and spice are followed by red fruit flavors and toasty oak on the palate. Good with grilled or roasted meats, fowl and game.
