Vibrant garnet color to the rim. Aromas of vanilla, pecan, plum and red berry intermingle with hints of tobacco, black tea and leather. Primary flavors are bold and rich. Notes of blackberry, lush plum and red-brick minerality give way to just a hint of cranberry, orange and confectionary flavors. Medium, dusty tannins accompanied by nice acidity give way to a long and pleasant finish. Allow this wine to age and the secondary flavors of dark fruit, blackberry and currant will express themselves during cellar time.

60-acre vineyard situated in the Yountville Appellation, northeast of the town of Yountville. The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Chardonnay. Deux Chevaux is French for “two horses,” the namesake of Tamber Bey.
