This vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon contains layers of complexity that really show themselves after a little time in the glass. Initially, it is deep and mysterious and then opens to reveal fragrances of plum, dark raspberry, and sweet vanilla. Cocoa and lightly roasted coffee mingle with hints of spice and cedar. A long finish is generous and engaging. It has an impeccable balance of integrated tannin, acidity, and alcohol that perfectly accompanies the meal and provides for excellent longevity in the cellar.
