Beautifully structured and polished, this stylish Cabernet immediately impresses with its aromatic purity, displaying dark fruits, espresso, savory cigar box, and graphite with hints of rose and black currant. In the mouth, fresh flavors of black plum, blackberry, and lavender give way to a robust, brooding finish.
The aromas draw you into the glass, with notes of coffee, spice, blackberry, dark chocolate and black cherry. The palate is full of dark fruit flavors, fuller around the edges, lighter in the middle. Lightly grainy tannins back it up, with it all showing the freshness of the vintage. Over time, there's a creaminess to the flavors that ups the appeal. Cocoa notes linger on the finish. It should have a long life ahead of it. Decant if drinking in the near term. Best after 2027, with a long life beyond that.
Tautly structured, with muscular tannins that compete with modest black currant, mineral and dusty sage flavors. Best after 2023. 2,075 cases made.
