This is a stunningly powerful 100% Cabernet, rich in fruit and well-oaked, that shows the authority of Oakville in a great vintage. Flooded with cassis, black cherries, dark chocolate and cedar, it’s nonetheless too young in brisk tannins to fully express itself. A joy to drink, but needs time. Best after 2009 and for many years after.
Deep garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. Aromas of fresh raspberry and charred oak. Tasty black cherry flavors with dusty, drying tannins and a good lick of charred oak. Sweet black and red fruit linger in the dusty mineral-accented close.
