    From the amazingly diverse Rutherford appellation of Napa Valley, this Bordeaux-inspired Meritage blends Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Carménère into a harmonious composition of vanilla, licorice, and black currant. Aged for 18 months in toasted French oak, this wine has a wonderful elegance.
