The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a huge wine. Black fruit, spices, smoke and licorice jump from the glass in an exuberant, voluptuous Cabernet Sauvignon endowed with notable depth and tons of pure texture. The style is super-ripe, opulent and intense, but all the elements are very nicely balanced.
Rustic and rounded, with chewy, grippy tannins, offering a tight, dense core of dark berry, black licorice, dried herb and tobacco notes. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2025. 3,000 cases made.-JL
