"The Black Opal Cabernet Merlot is deep crimson to purple. The aromas display excellent regional and varietal characters of berry and spice. These scents follow through with rich cherry and plum flavors, a hint of chocolate and a subtle touch of oak. The flavors developwell and finish with a long finely textured mouth feel. The Cabernet Sauvignon (62%) provides depth and cellaring potential. The Merlot (38%) in this well-balanced blend softens the palate to ensure this wine is enjoyable to drink immediately." ~Winery Notes
