Aging: 16 months in 100% French Oak (30% new)
Tasting Notes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Lush and fleshy, with cassis, boysenberry, and blackberry notes guided by hints of alder and mesquite. Stays open but defined through the finish, with a buried hint of sweet tobacco. A rich, layered beast, this has a nose rife with currants, blackberries, vanilla, and light toast with flavors of mocha, plum, and Bing cherry that mingle harmoniously on the tongue.
Aromas of ripe dark berries, sweet tobacco, roasted spices and bark. Full-bodied with velvety, fine-grained tannins and polished texture. Notes of black coffee, walnut and dried leaves to close. Lingering and slightly chewy finish. Better from 2025. ~93 James Suckling
