Wine Description

"Good full ruby. Aromas of crushed blackberry and blueberry, bitter chocolate, mocha and licorice. The palate offers a plush, sweet wave of primary fruit, showing lovely lift and grip and impressive energy. Sweeter than the 2007 today if perhaps a bit less serious for the longer term. But this wine's strong but integrated acidity nicely frames the flavors and extends the finish. I like this style!" -- International Wine Cellar

    (2002 Vintage) Good full ruby. Brooding, medicinal aromas of cassis and mint. Primary and grapey but round, with cassis and licorice flavors along with a light weediness. Fairly dense, even chunky, but could use a bit more sweetness and pliancy. I suspect this rather old-style cabernet will reward cellaring.
