This Cabernet Sauvignon has deep, dark hues of purple and red. Aromas of blackberry and cassis combine with notes of molasses, mocha, coffee, vanillin oak and a dusty sense of terroir. Deep flavors continue with black currant and molasses, espresso, dark cocoa and structured notes of oak maturation. This is a rich wine with excellent depth and a tremendous frame, with complexities that will evolve with time.
