Blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc.
On the nose, pure cassis, blackberry and cherry fruit tones combine with cocoa, coffee and cedar. The palate is big, luscious; full bodied yet vibrant, pure and elegant, with seamless toasty oak integration combining with fine tannins, leading to a long finish.
"Garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. Seductive black cherry and glove leather aromas. Soft, creamy texture with ripe plum, cherry and milk chocolate flavors. Lasting ripe black fruit impressions with well-integrated, sweet tannins." 92 Points
The Wine News
A great easy drinkable wine.
Deep purple color; Full-bodied; Complex and ripe nose with dark fruit and vanilla; Juicy & dense palate with a solid core of fruit (currant, blackberry, black cherry); Also detected coffee, chocolate & a light touch of cedar oak; Decanted/Aerated for about an hour, which made it open up nicely; Great depth and balance; Lengthy, slightly tannic finish. This was an older vintage than I am used to drinking, so I didn't know what to expect, but drank really well....thoroughly enjoyed it with filet mignon and stuffed mushrooms. Still have another bottle...guess I have to drink it soon!!
