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 

"...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
