This 100% old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon shows tremendous potential and typicity in the broadest sense of the word. Deep, intense ruby-red in color, with complex aromas of red fruits, plums, cherries, and notes of ripe black fruits such as blackberries and blueberries combine with a sweet touch of vanilla and coffee. The balance of fruit and acidity complemented by sweet and silky tannins promises long cellaring potential.
"Ruby-red. Intense, spice-accented aromas of dried cherry, redcurrant and pipe tobacco, with a hint of cedar in the background. Fleshy and sweet, showing a seamless texture to the deep, bright red fruit compote and candied rose flavors. Picks up a smoky quality with air and finishes with outstanding clarity and lingering smokiness. While this complex wine is approachable now, especially with some aeration, its track record for aging suggests that at least another five years of patience would be rewarded."
International Wine Cellar
"This ripe and polished red features forward yet dense cassis, kirsch and raspberry reduction notes that remain fresh and focused, with savory hints of licorice, fine herbs and tobacco gracing the long finish."
