(From 2012 Vintage) The nose is full of ripe black fruits with subtle notes of clove, black pepper, and sweet tobacco. On the palate, flavors of black raspberries and cassis yield to more subtle notes of cedar, vanilla, and sweet spice. The fine-grained tannins lend structure to the wine, which has a soft, lingering finish.
(From «nv» Vintage) Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced and vinified exactly the same way as the Merlot and Bonarda. It has a ripe, dark cherry and blueberry-scented bouquet with touches of graphite and a faint hint of apricot blossom. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe, generous entry, crisp acidity and very pure, graphite-tinged fruit towards the elegant, persistent finish.
