(From 2007 Vintage) A deep and dark ruby red in color that you can’t see your fingers through. Beautiful iridescence and clarity at the edges. Blackberries and other dark fruit mixed with earthy and vegital tones and vanilla. Starts off strong like great Napa cabs, but goes down with good complexity with equal measures of soft fruit and firm tannins. Chocolate covered cherries, and even a little blackberry and cocoa. Like most great Cabernet Sauvignons of the world this wine is smooth and shows balance in both fruit and tannins. This wine finishes long but not too dry.
