Superb rendition of the best of Texas High Plains appellation cabernet. Rich black currant aroma, deep cherry flavor with hints cedar, spice, and integrated oak.. Multiple layers of flavor across the palate and a long beautiful finish. It continues to evolve as over the course of the evening and never stops delivering new layers of complexity. Wish I had more in the cellar.
Tasted at a tasting with other non normal wine growing regions in the US. Definatley stood out. Showed more like a Bordeaux or Santa ynez valley Cab than a Napa, which I like. Very surprised at the quality
A different Cabernet, but in this case different is very good. Nose of fruit and wood, dark inky color, taste was balanced fruit, wood, earthy with strong tannins still present, but they did not mar the drinking experience. Very food-friendly for a Cab, would stand up to spicy fare. Really better to pair with food, rather than a sipping red wine. Surprised this was so good.
