Rich, lush, and structured, the 2017 vintage displays intense aromas of black currant, cassis, and crushed violet. This wine is velvety with a smooth, lingering finish of herbal notes, vanilla, and cocoa. Made with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
90pts Wine Enthusiast "This is a lush, full-bodied red, made from several sites. Black peppercorn, tobacco and clove accent a strong core of toasted oak and rich black currant, finishing in vanilla cream."
Enjoy this wine now with a grilled porterhouse, rack of lamb, and a winter vegetable roast or lay a few bottles down in your cellar to enjoy in 4 to 6 years.
