Randall Grahm of Bonny Doon Wines set out to craft a Cab-based wine that eschewed the characteristic grippy tannins and high acidity in favor of plush fruit characters and velvety texture. In order to achieve this goal, he would not let Cabernet dominate the blend and gave it a diverse cast of supporting characters: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot contributed to the wine's generously smooth fruit profile, while Syrah and Petite Sirah added a touch of peppery spice. In an amusing twist, Tannat was added to work with the Cabernet to add some structure and balance.
90 points, James Suckling
"A balanced and rich red with plum and spice character. Hints of dried fruits and dried meat. Medium to full body, round and soft tannins and a delicious finish. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Tannat, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah."
