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 balanced oak on the finish. 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 2031
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.”
