"Our 2014 Estate Red is soft and rich with a fragrant bouquet of black cherry, black tea and lavender. The palate is plush and round, offering flavors of black currants, tobacco leaf, dark chocolate and leather. As the flavors fan out across the palate, a distinct oak nuance intermingles seamlessly with supple tannins on the long finish. This wine is appealing in its youth, but will also age beautifully over the next 10 years." —winemaker

Blend: 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, 12% Petit Verdot, 5% Carmenere, 4% Merlot, 4% Syrah
"Blended of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Malbec, 16% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot and 5% Syrah, the 2014 Estate Red has a deep garnet-purple color and notes of blackberry preserves, crème de cassis and cedar with touches of baking spices, vanilla pod, dark chocolate and Mediterranean herbs. Full bodied, concentrated and generously fruited, it has firm, ripe, velvety tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long with the oak poking through. Afford it another 2-3 years in bottle and enjoy it over the next 15+ years." —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
