This wine is very alive yet subtle, sharply defined while smoothly put together, and entering its prime. The nose is awash in cedar, pine needles, graphite, ash red cherry, and dark plum notes. On the palate, the red cherry character takes over, along with pine and dried cranberries lingering long on the finish. The fine tannins are present as a background, and the acidity is taut, holding it together. This is a complex, old-school , multi layered Cabernet Sauvignon.
Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc
