(2011 Vintage) Inky hued, nearly opaque, with intense aromas of well ripened red and black fruits, toasted earth, and spicy vanilla, this quite rich cabernet is concentrated and expansive on the palate, while remaining round and relatively soft given its ample structure, and is followed by a long, broad and seductive finish.
OUTSTANDING. I was impressed. trong blackberry aromas burst forth from the nose of this 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. Toast and vanilla bean are present as well. A sweet compote of dark berry fruit flavors is present throughout the layered, full-bodied palate of this wine. These are supported by plum flavors and loads of spice elements such as nutmeg, clove, cardamom and hints of cinnamon. Coffee, dark chocolate and oodles of intense dark berry fruit flavors are present on the finish which has terrific length, persistence and intensity. This Cabernet is big, bold and brawny to be sure
Bought at Ristroto's for Kristine's birthday by mistake. Good for a $40.00. no way for $150.00!!! Later found it retailed for $75.00.
