Deep ruby color with hints of purple. Classic Cabernet aromas of rich red fruits, red pepper, plum, tobacco leaf, roasted coffee beans, and a touch of fresh mint. The aromas are echoed on the palate, with layers of fruit and spice pushing on and on. It's a full-bodied wine that has incredible length and purity of flavor—it really keeps you coming back for more. If Cabernet Sauvignon dreamed at night, this is what it would dream about!
Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to lamb, quail and other game birds, and cream-based sauces. This wine will age very well, so don't forget some bottles for the cellar too.
"Aromas of wood smoke, spice box, tobacco, coffee, and assorted black fruits inform the nose of a supple, easygoing, relatively forward wine that will deliver plenty of pleasure over the next 5-7 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright ruby-red. Cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice and spices on the nose. Juicy, spicy and nicely delineated, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of plum and currant. Finishes with a firm tannic spine that should support some aging, but this would be good with fatty meats right now. Classy Cabernet for the price range."
