(From 2012 Vintage) Clear with a medium ruby, purple core and light violet rim. With medium-plus intensity, it's a beautifully classic cabernet sauvignon mix of ripe blackcurrant, black and red cherries with vanilla, cedar, sweet tobacco, and licorice accents. : Medium-plus body with dark fruit of cassis and black cherry on the entry. Barrel notes of vanilla and cedar with savory black tea and herbal notes come through on the mid-palate. The finish is long and clean with lingering bright cherry and spice of sassafras and licorice, surrounded by smooth firm to medium tannins.
The wine has a medium intensity garnet hue. Notes of earth, vanilla and slightly toasted oak complement strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas. The wine has a soft entry and medium body with balanced acidity and tannins. Along with strawberry, earth, toasted oak and vanilla flavors already present on the nose, the wine has a cherry nuance and finish.The wine can be drunk now but will further evolve over the next 3 to 5 years. A bottle cellared over 5 years should always be decanted. Enjoy!
