This is a big, rich complex Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep, inky crimson in color. The nose is dominated by lifted berry, black cherry, and cassis fruit combined with smoky barrel ferment and sweet vanilla and spicy oak characters. The palate has great depth of concentrated Cabernet fruit and a backbone of fine-grained tannin. Due to the limited handling, this wine may develop a small amount of sediment over time.
