2003 Veraison Cabernet Sauvignon, Stagecoach Vineyard

Dark, purple-black hue; Aromas of black fruits, crème de cassis, blackberry, saffron and toasty oak give way to complex flavors; spice box, dark chocolate, currants, leather and black cherry, with a rich velvety texture, fine-grained tanin and a full mid-palate matches a long lingering finish. Great with rack of lamb, roasted duck and venison filet. Enjoy now through 2018.
