...bouquet of crushed rocks, tobacco, iodine, and lead pencil. This carries to a full-bodied Red Mountain Cabernet with gorgeous overall balance, ripe yet building tannins, an undeniable sense of minerality, and a blockbuster finish.
Impressive for its richness and deep structure, this red screams Red Mountain, offering compelling blackberry, crushed rock and espresso tones that build tension toward firm tannins.
Aromas of dusty plum, black cherry skin, currant and cassis are lifted by dusty purple flower and elegant oak spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Full-bodied, the wine is generous on the palate with ripe yet slightly rustic tones of dust-covered berries and a beautifully framed structure with succulent tannins...ends with a long, gripping finish...
Fruit-driven aromas of crushed blackberry and blueberry complicated by licorice, bitter chocolate, crushed rock, iron, peppery herbs and spices...finish is firmly tannic but suave, displaying lovely rising violety length and a lingering note of peppery herbs.
