Terra Valentine Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District

Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) This wine starts with bright fruit and cocoa powder on the nose. The palate has an incredibly soft entry followed by dark fruits and rich tannins. The word for this wine is balance, as neither the juicy fruit nor the soft tannins dominate.
