|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll|
The Oak Knoll producer's blend of 47% Malbec, 27% Petit Verdot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Merlot is elegant and structured. Red currant, cassis and cedar give personality to firm tannins-the grapes grown on the winery's rockiest blocks.
The 2016 Dragon's Tooth is blended of 46% Malbec, 27% Petit Verdot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot with a deep garnet-purple color and broody, earthy nose with tar and black soil over baked plums and black cherries plus Indian spices. The full-bodied palate is firm with a taut line and chewy finish.
