Wine.comThis wine has a very inky color, dense to the edge of the glass. The nose is very strong varietal Cabernet fruit cassis (or currant), earthy and also has some pepper. The vintage style is highlighted in the very balanced structure, rich and round with lots of fruit. The texture has an open front and that full body feel follows through to the finish.
