This wine exudes power and grace, and its opaque ruby color only hints at the intense, concentrated aromatics and tastes that follow. Forward flavors of blackberry, cassis and dark cherry overlay an earthy backdrop of dark chocolate, leather, tobacco, licorice and roasted chestnuts. Notes reminiscent of spice cake, cinnamon, ginger, molasses and candied fruit add a subtle sweetness; while nuances of acacia flowers, rose petal and granite increase complexity. Winemaker Francoise Peschon notes: "Following in the classic tradition of Eisele Vineyard cabernets, this wine is perfectly balanced with a luscious, velvety mouth feel, mature tannins, ne structure and a long, cedar finish. Like the finest classified growth Bordeaux, it promises years of aging potential."
