Intense ruby color. Dark chocolate and bright red fruit aromas, with hints of tobacco The mid palate has a rich texture, very well balanced. Notes of dark cherry and licorice flavors on the mouth, with velvety tannins and a lingering finish.
"Rich and ripe, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine is filled out with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It has enormous flavors of cherry tart, cassis, mocha and toast, and they seem to change with every sip. The tannin structure is smooth, with a dusty astringency that provides grip. Already excellent, this should develop bottle complexity over the next 6–8 years."
"Pure, rich and vivid blackberry and wild berry flavors are tightly focused, supple and graceful. Ends with a long, tapered finish. Drink now through 2022."
