94% CabSauv, 4% Merlot, 2% Cab Franc
This 2003 Cabernet is a gorgeous dark ruby colored wine which shows off lovely aromatics of ripe black cherry and berry like fruit. The nose is layed with cedar and spice and a caramel toasty note coming from an assortment of French Oak barrels. Flavors match the aromas with blackberry and cherry character. The mouthfeel is a classic Paradigm; very silky and round with beatifu structure that adds up to a wine you can enjoy now but is built to last. This vineyard has been a ver consistent producer of balanced wines that are blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
