A flashy, soft Cabernet for drinking now. It’s a little on the sweet side, with raspberry and cherry tart, brown sugar, chocolate and cinnamon spice flavors. Not an ager, so drink now.
New French oak dominates this wine with buttered toast and caramel flavors. Despite this heavy hand, the underlying wine somehow shines through, with orange, mango, pear and peach flavors, brightened with brisk acidity.
