(2009 Vintage) Dark and bold with aromas of white blossom, spice and cedar. Firm and impressive, this wine opens with jammy flavors of boysenberry and cassis with a floral essence that is almost citrusy. Layers of clove, cedar and tobacco encompassed by big, yet rounded, tannins add weight and length to the finish.
International Wine Cellar(2002 Vintage) Good full ruby. Brooding, medicinal aromas of cassis and mint. Primary and grapey but round, with cassis and licorice flavors along with a light weediness. Fairly dense, even chunky, but could use a bit more sweetness and pliancy. I suspect this rather old-style cabernet will reward cellaring.
