Aquinas Philosopher’s Blend


Crafted only in years when our Napa Valley fruit is deemed exceptional, Philosopher’s Blend is the ultimate Aquinas wine. For the 2009 vintage, Cabernet Sauvignon was artfully blended with small amounts of Merlot and Petite Sirah, and barrel aged for 36 months. The wine opens with concentrated notes of boysenberry and dried currant complemented by cedary cigar box notes imparted by 100% French Oak. Flavors of black raspberry, dried cherry and cassis dominate with hints of dark chocolate and espresso rounding out the palate. This full-bodied Napa Valley wine exhibits a nuanced balancing of structure and grace, depth and complexity.
