Tasting Notes

Deep violet in color, this 100% cabernet sauvignon leads with an expressive nose of cigar box, baked fig compote and black currant. The palate has a stunning intensity, with layers of dark fruit, black cherry and savory dried herbs. Round, chewy tannins support the lingering mineral-driven finish.
