Winemaker's Notes:

This is a broad, generous Cabernet with incredible depth and complexity. The color is dark from center to rim. The bouquet is highly aromatic with notes of cassis, currants, vanilla and toast. The extended oak aging tamed the tannins and added rich,textural notes to the wine. Thick, round and mouth filling, it is a wine that combines power and grace.
