TASTING NOTES

Aromas of dark red fruit, tobacco, and sandalwood permeate the glass and pleasant notes of orange pekoe tea complete the bouquet. The entry of this Cabernet is soft and velvety with flavors of black cherry and dark chocolate that broaden on the mid-palate and lead to a long, elegant finish.

ACCOLADES

91 points – Wine Enthusiast

“A lovely Cabernet, rich and ripe in blackberries and cassis, with a touch of herbs and a little heat from high alcohol. A good steak, with its salty fattiness, will take care of that. But it’s tannic. Not so much that you can’t drink it now, but it really wants a year or two in the cellar.”
