Tasting Notes: Deep garnet color. A complex melange of cassis, plum, and mocha. The beautiful and inviting arom opens further to reveal notes of peppercorn, black olive, sage, and tobacco. Elegant and rich, with cherry and blackberry fruit followed by fine, supple tannins and a velvety mouthfeel. Notes of cocoa, creme de cassis, and black truffle complement the complex fruit. Delicious roundness and texture lead to a seamless finish.
Galaxy Notes: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec Sourced from the Franciscan Oakville Estate Vineyard. Aged 20 months in 75% new French oak.
