“This monumental Cabernet launches forth with aromas of black forest chocolate cake, cherries, mint, violets and spices that lead to a cascade of tightly wound blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with camphor and baking spices. This silky smooth and powerful wine is finely crafted with amazing freshness and vivacity, framed by prodigious tannins and finishing with lingering notes of espresso and creamy, new American oak! We recommend decanting now (pre-2020) and calculate this powerhouse will provide true pleasure through 2028+.” - Hal Oates | Porthos President & Founder
