Winemaker Notes

This charming Cabernet delivers a classic Bordeaux profile, with excellent structure and balance. It flaunts complex flavors of blackcurrant, cherry, and dark chocolate, tinged with alluring herbal and spice notes.

Critical Acclaim

This is a very nice Cab at an extremely friendly price. Smoke and deep black fruit are the first impressions from the bouquet, with aromas of whole tobacco leaf and balsamic reduction appearing upon further nosing. Filling and velvety in the mouth, a kiss of charred oak and roasted cocoa nibs remain through the close.

Showing impressive grip and persistence, I suggest leaving this for another 12 months in bottle. Drink 2013-2020.
