Winemaker's Notes:

Full bodied and richly textured, this cabernet displays intense aromas and flavors of black currant, sandalwood, white pepper and cocoa, with a smooth, lingering finish. If you have access to a cool dark place, lay some bottles of this Reserve down for up to a decade and patience will reward you!
