Deep, saturated color is just one of the hallmarks of our Estate Cabernet, and this inky purple beauty
shows great intensity all the way to the edge of the glass. The nose is loaded with rich aromas
of black fruits and spices. Notes of blackberry solicit memories of hot summer afternoons while
clove, allspice, vanilla, and hints of cocoa tease with thoughts of baked goodies. Emerging from
these layers is a core of brandied cherries, light oak, and a hint of anise. This wine shows a smooth
entry that steadily builds to a full, fleshy mid-palate, then evolves seamlessly into a rich, spicy finish
that invites you back for more. The black fruits from the nose are evident throughout the palate,
and are complemented by lively, red fruit characteristics brought forward by the core of bright acidity.
There are loads of fine grain tannins that give mass to the wine without being aggressively astringent,
hinting at the delicacy and suppleness that will come with time in the cellar.
