A harmonious and abundant balance of red and dark berry flavors, with soft silky tannins. Pronounced Amarena cherry and cassis upfront, with layers of cranberry, boysenberry, coffee bean and plum lingering on the finish
This blend of Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot mirrors the three knots the Franciscan Friars tie into their cintures (rope belt) symbolizing Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience. Fruit forward and approachable with black currant, dark berry medley, velvety tannins, and long blackberry finish.

Pleasant and sophisticated flavors of sassafras root, cherry cola, cassis, loganberry, bay leaf, and blackberry, with fine notes of eucalyptus and soft tannins on the finish.
