Tasting Notes

As ripely fruity and oaky as any Cab out there, offering a flood of blackberries, currants, cherries, raspberries, mocha and sweet, smoky new oak. Yet lifted up by the tannin-inspired structure and a welcome, herbaceous note of olives. Marries the best of the old and new styles, a terrific Cabernet that will develop for 6–8 years.
