Dark purple in color, with a rich nose of blackberry, chocolate and cinnamon, enhanced with gentle vanilla flavors. Tannins are firm in this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, with pleasant toastiness emerging on the finish. This wine is made to enjoy upon release, and will continue to develop and mature in the bottle for three to five years.
"Here's an herbal, minty Cab with some true varietal notes. It's very dry and clean in the mouth, with melted tannins. Everyday-style price, but with some real elegance, especially in the velvety texture."
