(2002 Vintage) Deep ruby color with hints of purple. Classic Cabernet aromas of rich red fruits, plum, tobacco, roasted coffee beans, and a touch of fresh mint. The aromas are echoed on the palate, with layers of fruit and spice pushing on and on. It's a full-bodied wine that has incredible length and purity of flavor — it really keeps you coming back for more. Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to lamb, quail and other game birds, and cream-based sauces.
