This Cabernet displays all the classic cabernet characteristics - plum, black currant, and blackberry - with added dimensions of fig, toast and Christmas spices. It's easy drinking and playful, despite it's noble pedigree, and the screw cap closure makes it the perfect wine for road trips, tailgating and backyard barbecues with the neighbor's.
The aroma is captivating, with dark cherry and ripe dark berries. It feels luxurious and silky on the tongue, full-bodied in the mouth, exhibiting flavors of deep plum, leather, and blueberries. It is velvety and dry on the finish. This blend is structured and satisfying. It is truly a bottle to enjoy as you contemplate the passage of time.....
Aromas of black currant, sage and eucalyptus. The color is dark and intense. There is a distinct meatiness to this vintage, with hearty red and black fruits and nuances of flat cola and toast. The finish is smooth and dry, and it drinks just as nicely the next day (if you don't drink the whole bottle!).
Dark fruit flavors of plum and blueberry are lifted with tastes of strawberry and raspberry. Hints of cola, nutmeg, coffee, toast and spice abound. This wine is boldly flavored and darkly complex and should age very well for two to five years.
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The color is dark and deep, the flavors are layered and complex. Everything is in place for this wine to age beautifully and the reward for up to 15 years of patience and careful celllaring should be a spectacular and thrilling wine experience.
This wine is medium ruby in color in the glass. The aroma of rich red berries, juicy cherries, strawberries, some cola, and coffee, along with dried roses burst through. They are accompanied by notes of boysenberries, cedar spice, and black tea flavors. Combined with smooth tannins and juicy acidity. The finish is medium in length and juicy. Chewy, warm, and rich, this wine begs for cooler weather. It remains a very delicious wine that opens up a lot with a floral and spicy complexity.
This wine is dense and dark, rich and explodes with classic Cabernet aromas. Silky tannins and a lingering finish complete the experience. We expect this wine to evolve gracefully in the bottle for a decade or more.
