ANALYSIS: 14.5% alc
WINEMAKING: This red wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Merlot, Syrah, Sangiovese, Zinfandel and Petit Verdot which creates a beautiful reflection of the grapes. Each grape varietal was picked, fermented, and aged separately for 12 months in French Oak.
After the wine met a level of maturity, an extensive and judicious blending trial occurred to create a wine that is complex and sophisticated. It was then fully blended and aged an additional 13 months giving the different varietals the chance to meld together as one.
