Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Ruby red in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon displays complex aromas of ripe blackberries. With hints of mocha, bittersweet chocolate, and flavors of juicy dark berry, its concentrated flavor is enhanced by firm, supple tannins.

    (2004 Vintage) Intense and concentrated, with a vibrant medley of dark fruits built around currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit that offers a unique flavor profile. Excellent acidity and firm, vibrant tannins on the finish. Still, the flavors are persistent. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2012.

    (2004 Vintage) A richly textured, smooth wine, Briarcrest offers thick blackberry, dark cherry and cassis flavors, harmonized with toasty oak, cedar, tobacco and chocolate aromas. Briarcrest is intense, big and fruity in its youth and can be bottle-aged up to 15 years, developing added smoothness and rich complexity. January 2010
