Winemaker's Notes

(From 2000 Vintage) Deep ruby red that darkens with aeration. Great aromatic complexity with red and black cherry, cassis and earthier notes of tar, leather and roasted coffee. The palate is immediately supple and juicy with sweet briary jam and then darkens to show layered black fruits and chocolate. The mid palate is rich and full and the soft tannins allow the breadth of the wine to gradually unfold across the palate, leading to a pleasant grip on the finish.Delicious and approachable on release, this Cabernet ...

    Very nice aromas of black currant, leather, chocolate, and honey. Palate is a bit too fruity, heavy on red berries, ripe cherry, some of the leather/chocolate. Still very nice.
