This is a lovely Cabernet Sauvignon that’s drinking well now, although it’s certainly tannic. It should hold well through the next 6 years. Dry and balanced, it shows classic flavors of blackberries and black currants, with earthier notes of olive tapenade and carob.
This inaugural vintage from an ambitious winery is ripe and powerful and oaky, as expensive Cabs tend to be. On the deficit side is overripe fruit, with a raisiny finish and a heavy texture, but the wine is fully dry and does possess some elegance. Drink over the next five years.
