Wine.comAromas of black cherry, berries and licorice spice introduce this fragrant, fruit driven Cabernet Sauvignon. In the mouth, bright cherry and blackberry fruit flavors intermingle with cassis, plum and white sage. This Cabernet has an inviting entry and firm tannins that hold the flavors. Well balanced with a long finish, this wine would pair tastily with a hearty dish of braised beef shanks and a celery root mash.
Wine BuyerThis dark and intense wine opens with concentrated aromas of red currant fruit that mingle with cocoa powder, and an earthy chaparral character that speaks of its volcanic mountain origin. Flavors of red currant, dark chocolate, and walnuts are entwined with restrained tannins that give way to a long vanilla oak finish. January 2009
