The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful aromatics of plum, cherry, currants, coffee, cocoa and hints of allspice, fresh thyme, tobacco and forest floor. The body is laced with integrated tannins, great freshness and red fruit characteristics.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot
"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon emerges from the glass with mocha, tobacco, grilled herbs, smoke, licorice, incense and orang peel. An exotic, layered wine, the 2011 impresses for its length and pure persistence. The style is that of a cold year, which means the tannins are a bit firm and in need of further bottle age. This is a beautiful wine for the year, but also in its own right. Readers need to give the 2011 at least another year or two in bottle. The blend is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot."
