The intense edge of Cabernet Sauvignon combines with the roundness of Merlot, the blackberry flavors of Malbec, and the firm structure of Petit Verdot for a wine with layer upon layer of flavor and depth. Aromas of toasted nutmeg and cocoa powder accent the dark fruit flavors of black cherry, ripe raspberry, and currant. Well-structured tannins round out this vintage with a smooth, rich finish.
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec, 10% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. Two friends who each pursued his true calling in life, Jim Nantz and Peter Deutsch, have created a wine in the spirit of their shared passion for exceptional wine and their regard for craftsmanship and excellence. This blend of four classic, Bordeaux-style varietals is sourced from exceptional Alexander Valley vineyards to produce a supple, elegant wine rich with complexity. They offer this wine as a tribute to their fathers, for years of inspiration, guidance, and strength.
