Winemaker Celia Welch Notes, “Dark, jammy notes of cranberry, plum and cherry combine with subtle hints of cedar, smoke and mocha in this exceedingly complex Cabernet. On the palate, the wine is round and satiny at entry with bright cherry flavors and the vibrancy of fresh plums. Darker notes of tobacco, spice and mocha build in the finish.” ~ Celia Welch
