Wow, what a fantastic wine...cherries, cassis and white chocolate. So good, it’s scary. Rich, long, powerful...wonderfully firm and tannic...will easily improve through 2015 and possibly beyond.
...a gorgeous nose of smoke, cedar, burning wood fires, and creme de cassis, this powerful, intensely rich, complex Cabernet reveals notions of chocolate, charcoal, and blackberry fruit.
The core flavors are built around ripe, lively plump, currant, herb and smoky, toasty oak, but what impresses most is its elegance and polish.
Aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, cedar, loam and menthol, with a whiff of roast coffee. Rich but dry and savory; smooth and aromatic. Subtly complex flavors of currant, lead pencil, cedar, loam and menthol.
