An exclusive blend of 53% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot
Tasting Characteristics: Flavors of bright strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit with a potpourri of dried orange peel. Notes of sandalwood, cardamom and bay with hints of licorice and exotic earthiness. With 22 months of oak aging, this is a massive wine. Truly “the Head of the Class,” at Burrell School, this rich, multi-flavored wine will be speaking out for many memorable years.
Best enjoyed now through 2030
Accolades: Double Gold Medal, Appellation America, December 2008.
“If you only drink one Bordeaux-style wine from the Santa Cruz Mountains, make it this one.”
