Tasting Notes: 100% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Compelling depth and complexity. Vibrant notes of ripe blackberry and plum meld with hints of dark chocolate and earthy spice. The warm growing season has fostered a rich concentration, balanced by the grape's natural acidity. Polished tannins provide structure, culminating in a prolonged, velvety finish.
