ITEM 8461775 - Removed from a subterranean, temperature and humidity controlled residential cellar
Fragrant aromas of dried cranberries, prunes, cinnamon and cumin giving way to subtler earthy notes of leather and tar. A lot of discernable fruit remains on the palate framed by crisp acidity and a medium level of grainy tannins.
Aromatically complex, with enticing floral, perfumed fruit and spice, cedar and cigar box scents. Delivers a rich, complex core of earthy currant, mocha, exotic spice and fresh leather flavors. Tannins are well-integrated, with a long, vibrant, pleasantly earthy aftertaste.
...wine of pure impact. The fruit is front and center in this bold, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon.
...Sweet, exotic, tealeaf flavours. Nice balance but a little muted somehow. Tannins still very much in evidence...
