Tasting Notes

This dense, dark Cabernet opens with the fresh aromas of blueberries and linen, with a twist of the more opulent overtones of roasted meats, cigars, and the forest floor. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and powerful as minerality and earthiness intermingle with the sweetness of elderberry and currants. This wine is evenly structured and well balanced with a beautifully extended finish.
