Rich expressive flavors of cassis, mulberry and a hint of eucalypt. French oak maturation adds touches of dark chocolate, cedar and spice.
Wakefield was founded as a Cabernet producer, so it's no surprise that the 2009 is a very good drop. The cassis fruit carries a slightly herbal tinge, with hints of coffee and vanilla helping to frame the fruit. It's lush and velvety in texture, making it drinkable now and over the next several years.
Inky violet color. Ripe cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by notes of cracked pepper and floral oils. Lush and creamy on the palate, offering deep blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and a touch of warmth. Finishes smooth and broad, with no obvious tannins and good power.
