Made in a classic Bordeaux style, this Napa beauty is made from grapes in the prestigious Rutherford, Oak
Knoll and Calistoga appellations. The blend is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot. Collectively,

spiced plum, camphor aromas and a hint of mint waft from the glass. Notions of tobacco and cedar
emerge with a swirl. Silky with smooth tannins with jammy, dark berry flavors, this wine delivers on the
Napa Valley promise.
Red berries, blackcurrant, menthol, tobacco and cedar.

alongside a beef roast or grilled steak, and savor the last few sips with some after-dinner cheeses and crusty
bread. Stilton, Gorgonzola and other strong aged cheeses will stand up to the wine’s rich fruit and lush
The Peys call their Cabernet Sauvignon “Fin de Journée” (“at the close of the day”) to express when they most
enjoy drinking it. Jonathan and Susan believe it is a “textbook” example of a noble variety grown in
outstanding Napa Valley appellations.
