“This is a brooding, intense Cabernet that hits the palate with waves of super-concentrated fruit and spice. Gorgeous aromatics loaded with currant, anise and roasted espresso evolve to include blackberry, plum, sage, and baking spices. There is remarkable balance here for such a showy Cabernet. Enjoy anytime over the next 15 years.”
