(From 2009 Vintage) Deep vibrant hues of red and purple present with this Cabernet. Aromas of black currant and black plum integrate with mocha, toasted oak and dark chocolate, along with hints of black pepper and a dusty sense of terroir. Tight blackberry and black cherry flavors dominate the palate and are backed with the more subtle flavors of anise, vanillin, espresso and a note of raspberry. This is a structured yet finely grained wine.
