Description

"...Its ruby/purple color is followed by gorgeous notes of crème de cassis, graphite, lead pencil, spice, and ripe tobacco. Finesse-oriented, incredibly elegant, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, it's a brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon that shines for its elegance and purity." ~ Jeb Dunnuck

"...wonderfully pure notes of ripe blackcurrants, wild blueberries and black cherry compote with touches of cedar chest, candied violets, pencil lead and dark chocolate. The full-bodied palate is jam-packed with concentrated black fruits, framed by exquisitely ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with impressive length and loads of black berry layers." ~ Wine Advocate 

"Intense, with dark loam and fig notes leading off, working in unison as they drive through, picking up tobacco, black currant, sage and roasted juniper accents along the way. Muscular style." ~ Wine Spectator 

"...Powerful and yet nicely lifted, the 2016 has plenty to offer. Cedar, iron, smoke, leather, licorice and dried cherry shape an expressive, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon that is quite gracious given its size." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...this is earthy in sage and pencil shavings, with a mild, softly smooth structure of rich blueberry and black currant. Thick concentration emphasizes the firm tannin and generous oak, with a finishing touch of mocha." ~ Wine Enthusiast
