Beautiful, dark scarlet center with a matching rim. Aromas of ripe, dark fruit with a touch of sweet vanilla occupy the forward bouquet. The wine offers deeper flavors of blueberry on the palate, reverberating the lush fruit and vanilla bean essence that is elevated by rich French oak. This is a well-structured Cabernet with tannins soft and supple.
Big and full w/oak dryness but a bit of Syrah sweetness right out of the bottle. Enjoying it and know it will be even better tomorrow. Second review: tasty opened 4/2013 but flavors are flat and astringent the following day.
