Wine Description

(From 2005 Vintage) Black in color, with aromas of blackberry, black licorice, tar, mineral and fresh flowers. Full-bodied and powerful, with ultrafine tannins that last for minutes on the palate. A polished, thought-provoking wine. Shows wonderful purity of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaker's Notes

Impressive purple color, ripe cassis fruit, full body and a rich intense finish.
