Balance and expression of the unique Spring Valley terroir are the goals for this Right Bank-style wine. Complex layers of herbal notes, orange zest, and almond paste on the nose evolve into complex aromatic notes of summer berries, candy, and cigar.
Ultra-rich, round flavors of ripe berries and bright summer fruit along with soft polished tannins lead to chocolate, caramel, and vanilla notes on the spectacularly long and complex finish. A very "Bordeaux-driven" wine and a perfect expression of Spring Valley.
60% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Malbec
