The aromas are well-defined with concentrated cassis and ripe black cherry, backed by mocha and toasted vanilla notes. On the palate, this full-bodied tannic Cabernet-based blend has a firm mid-palate presence and loast of cellar-worthy potential. As the spectrum of flavors unfolds, the huckleberry and raspberry give way to a complex mocha, coffee, vanilla matrix - all balanced under the fruit notes, giving the wine a tingly and silky finish. This is a serious wine - a truly wonderful splurge.
Try it with a mushroom-encrusted filet mignon served with sun-dried tomato compote and a side of roasted blue potatoes with sea salt. This wine, when cellared properly, will drink well through 2030.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Syrah, 2% Merlot, 2% Malbec
