An amazingly rich and layered Cabernet that is drinking beautifully right now. Dark red, almost black, in color; full in body; nose of pencil shavings and blackberry. Tastes of black cherry, milk chocolate, rosemary, and cedar, with a finish that goes on and on. 14.9% alcohol. Blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 15% Petit Verdot, and 9% Merlot. Just a glorious wine, which belongs in the league with Realm and others producing modern, dense, and elegant Napa reds.
Took a few hours to really open but then it unleashed the mild fruit and balanced wine that you would expect. Palette dark berry, mocha, and wood flavors finishes with licorice. Lingering flavors and very good on the finish. This is a meritage dominated by Cabernet Sauvingnon with Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot
