Color: Dark red to black, with great intensity.
Nose: An intense, rich bouquet led by ripe
cassis and berry fruits. Behind the primary fruit
are distinctive vineyard characters of dark
chocolate and mint.
Palate: This vineyard consistently produces
intense, fleshy and full mid-palate Cabernet
with massive fruit weight displaying dark cherry
and blackcurrant flavors. This is a big full wine
with ample flavor and concentration.
Aging: Medium to long term cellaring possible.
Rich, minty. Not as good as the 2007 yet. Might need some time in the cellar to mellow out. Don't give up on it.
