    This wine comes from 70% Hershey vineyard and has a crazy QPR. The nose explodes with aromas of dark black fruit, cassis, black tea, chocolate and espresso notes. The palate is ripe, rich and medium-full bodied, with wonderfully integrated fine tannins. Superbly layered, dark fruit fills the palate, yet with a good minerality lift and a long and rich finish. Blend of 83% Cabernet, 7% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc. 10% new oak. Drink now or over the next eight years.
