Color: A deep dark core radiating a bright crimson arc.
Nose: Unmistakably Cabernet - no pretense. Subtle oak and complexing V.A. sweetness court lavender / musk / cinnamon... with a competing splash of exotic Middle-Eastern spices for good measure. Bin 707-like complexities... how can this be?!
Palate: Medium to full-bodied, with a firm finish aided & abetted by chunky Cabernet tannins. Cabernet tightness, with fruit sweetness (choco-mint,
blackberry) and an overlay of dusty oak exposed
via tell-tale cedar and vanillin nuances. Linear /
tight / defined.
