Powerful, ripe, complex and memorable. These words speak loudly of this rich and bold wine born from a quintessential Napa Valley vintage. From the first moments in the glass, this deep red Cabernet Sauvignon absolutely comes to life. The nose is layered with fragrances of ripe black cherry, integrated oak vanillin and a light dusting of black pepper spice. With a bit of time to open up, subtle layers of French barrel roast and es-presso mingle the nuances. Fresh and ripe fruit flavors of cherries, plums and currants lead the charge on the early palate attack. Typical of a young Oakville Cabernet, the structure and makeup is youthful but gives way to the pure red stone fruit flavors that make up the true heart and soul of this wine.
