Color: Deep inky red with purple hints.
Nose : Intense red fruit aromas, cassis and red currant combined with light touches of tobacco and Provence herbs. Very good oak and fruit balance.
Mouth: Intense attack followed by juicy and round tannins. Good acidity, well balanced with structure and a long finish.
Pairing: Ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant and serve at 16-18°. Ideal companion for meats and elaborate dishes.
"A lush, extracted Cab with lead pencil, wood shavings, burnt toast and thick black fruit aromas. There's no shortage of body and boldness, but it is kind of thick and soupy, and also fairly tannic. Flavors of roasted berries, rubber and fig paste are rich but somewhat short on complexity."
"Rock-solid, with a juicy core of raspberry and boysenberry fruit laced with briar, sweet spice and toast notes. Fruit pumps out nicely on the finish. Drink now."
