100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in french oak for 1year and bottled without filtration. Deep garnet color. The nose is pleasant, not overly intense, but surely multi-layered. It opens with black currant, black cherry and plum along with notes cedar and vanilla. Full bodied and smooth;on the palate it shows great fruit intensity and balance, but it lacks complexity. A black cherry attack leads to some green tea notes with cocoa powder and vanilla on the finish. The tannins are vigorous and dusty. A simple, well made and modern french cab.
This gets a 90 on it's quality, but certainly due to it's price - Black, full bodied, a nose of black fruit, plum, cedar, spice and oak, well made, quite huge with strong tannins on the attack, softened with each glass, sweet, smooth on the palate with good length, one of the best cabs we've had at this price (90 Points).
