Shows enough fanciness to make it worth the price. Although it has no possibilities of improving with age, it’s a fine, softly gentle Cabernet to drink now. Shows correct blackberry, black currant and oak flavors
"Chocolate, plum and toasted oak aromas spill out of this dense, ruby-hued wine. Flavors of black cherry, mushroom and a hint of smoky cedar are nicely integrated into the rich palate. The Cabernet Franc and other Bordeaux varieties add intensity and additional layers of complexity. The lingering, medium-full finish is handsomely balanced with fruit, oak and tannin."
Aromas of bright cherries and blackberries lead to hints of sweet vanilla oak, mocha, white pepper, spice, and rose petals. The palate is rich with flavors of cherry, ripe fruit, and blackberries, with notes of white pepper and firm tannins on the long, fruity finish. This is a wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for years to come.
