This Cabernet Sauvignon's intensity shows immediately through its saturated scarlet appearance and through its warm and inviting nose that offers up aromas of black current, graphite and loam. While this wine has a lovely well-rounded attack, the finely-grained tannic structure is the backbone which underpins all its other qualities. Refreshing acidity plays nicely against the tannins allowing for soft and harmonious flavors of just-ripened plum and oak-spiced vanilla. As the wine progressed through the mid-palate and to the finish, the lingering flavors recede slowly as the regal tannic structure becomes most evident. This wine’s intensity and structure will evolve in a positive manner for years to come.
