There are incredible aromatics on this Cabernet. Dusted summer blackberries and creme de cassis. Delicate fine-tuned French oak strikes a perfect balance, never overshadowing the fruit. The tannins are silky, rich and smooth, detailing the amazing singularity of the terrior of Oakville. A wine of grace and beauty. Impeccable and delicious. Dramatic and just about perfect.
"Just a little different, and quite intriguing for it, this wine offers aromas of cherries, raspberry, vanilla and a hint of dried mint all buttressed by creamy, rich oak. It is medium-full to full in body, balanced and supple with early hints of polish and fine-grained tannins that provide structure without excess coarseness. There is a bit of depth not currently found in its flavors, but this is one where time in bottle could yield a wine that improves noticeably, and we would commend a wait of a half decade at least with the thought that even more is in store."
