Deep ruby color with hints of purple. Classic Cabernet aromas of rich red fruits, red pepper, plum, tobacco leaf, roasted coffee beans, and a touch of fresh mint. The aromas are echoed on the palate, with layers of fruit and spice pushing on and on. It's a full-bodied wine that has incredible length and purity of flavor—it really keeps you coming back for more. If Cabernet Sauvignon dreamed at night, this is what it would dream about!
Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to lamb, quail and other game birds, and cream-based sauces. This wine will age very well, so don't forget some bottles for the cellar too.
"A cab with attractive blackberry, dark chocolate and walnuts. Full body, with soft tannins and a racy finish. Pretty texture and savoriness. Better in 2015."
"A flashy red, showing ripe cassis and racy cherry coulis notes, wound with a structured layer of spice, mocha and licorice."
"Medium red-ruby. Aromas of currant, tobacco leaf, espresso and bitter chocolate. Juicy, spicy and penetrating, if a bit youthfully imploded today; not a fleshy or sweet style but boasts very good spine and thrust. Finishes classically dry, with lingering notes of cherry, raspberry and nutty oak. This may ultimately merit a higher score if time in bottle brings more pliancy.
