Though Cabenet Franc is only a small portion of the overall blend, the floral character of the grape is evident. More prominent are the expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot – plum, black cherry, blueberry, tea and cedar. 
The blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot is built upon individually fermented and aged lots from the Seven Hills Vineyard. We used about one-third new oak, and only French oak, from a short list of coopers for whom we find an affinity for our style.  The wine spent about 18 months in barrel.
