“This flashy new Cabernet blend offers a deliciously rich and ultra-smooth thrill ride that reminds us of popular Cabernets trading for much higher prices. Opulent notes of dark chocolate mints and fresh coconut, with a hedonistic velvety finish. Full-throttle flavors include crème de cassis, blueberry pie, baking spice with vanilla oak.” - California Wine Advisors

Winery Notes: “Ashes & Diamonds Rouge No. 2 is a multi-vintage Bordeaux Blend from select vineyards across Napa Valley.  Each release showcases a Cuvee-grand vineyard. Made in the same style of Napa Valley’s bygone era, Rouge also marries multiple vintages as another tool in the art of blending, which delivers a more approachable wine earlier in its life, resulting on a wine that’s both complex and delicious.”
