This wine has a dark ruby color, a lush mouthfeel with aromas and flavors of rich dark fruit, blackberry, black cherry, and plum.
This MAGNUM COLLECTION wine is made from grapes grown at Michel-Schlumberger estate vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Our winemaker carefully selected individual barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot to achieve the optimum expression of flavor for this “Red Field Blend.”
The grapes were crushed into small fermenters. After cold-soaking for three days to extract rich color, the must fermented on the skins for three weeks to obtain a richly extracted wine.
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Cabernet Franc, 7% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot
