The nose on this is just incredible, showing a beautiful combination of flowers, ripe sweet cherries and spice. Full-bodied, rich and tannic, but very tightly wound and compact. The mid-palate is deep and complex, with multiple layers of intense dark fruit and spice flavor. Doesn't yet show much length on the finish, where the polished tannins are just beginning to integrate. This wine is a work in progress, and has enormous potential. Could eventually be the best Cabreo ever, but will need at least another 3-4 years to get there.
