Scents of jasmine invite the drinker in, as notes of peppermint stick, hazelnut, and licorice combine to create a distinctively marzipan aroma. The bouquet further exhibits hints of zest and clean notes of flint and wet stone. In the palate, a viscous, yet delicate introduction leads to a round and broad mouthfeel with flavors of huckleberry and baking spices. The 2003 features a classic structure, providing a vital and balanced foundation for the wine. The supple tannins are easily approached and lead to Anomaly's signature, velvety finish.
Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot
"Classic Cabernet character from this St. Helena wine, which contains small amounts of Cab Franc and Petite Verdot. Opens with a splashy burst of black currants, spicy cherry liqueur, charry cedar and new oak and turns elegant and complex in the mouth. Polished, delicate structure, with a round, supple feel. Finishes dry and long."
