(From 2012 Vintage) A deep, saturated color leads to lifted aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and herby black-currant, followed by a rich, layered mouthfeel, loaded with juicy black cherry, cedar, and crème de cassis, and structured with ripe, mature tannins.
"Aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and cedar lead to a rich, layered mouthfeel, replete with black cherry, vanilla, and cassis, and structured with lush, mature tannins. Enjoy this seductive cabernet sauvignon now and over the next several years." -Winery
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines6% Merlot; 2% Petit Verdot. A touch of brown leaf invades the ripe, somewhat curranty, mostly black cherry fruit that occupies center stage in this full-bodied but fairly ordinary bottling. It has a bit of suppleness to its credit at entry but gives it up to green and tannic narrowness at the finish.
