The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine exhibits concentrated black ruby color with a brilliant deep purple rim. Intense aromas of ripe black cherries, deep red rose, spice and sweet vanilla are just a small introduction to the flavors. On the palate, luscious ripe fruit builds to a bright round center filled with blueberry, black cherry, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate. An exotic spice and mineral quality reveals itself in the nose and palate and imprints the unique component from the Quinta de Pedras vineyard. A well integrated structure allows the complex flavors to unfold through the lengthy seamless finish. An elegant and concentrated wine definitely worthy of aging.
