Very ripe, rich and decadent, with flavors of blackberries, cherries, chocolate, anise, smoked butter, black pepper and sweet oak. Delicious right out of the bottle and for the next six years.
Scads of ripe blackberry, blueberry, cherry and Cocoa Puff fruit flavors on this Cabernet, which is also rich in sweet, buttery oak. It’s delicious by definition, yet the modern style could use some restraint.
This Cabernet starts out tight and resistant. Although it has plenty of ripe cherry and blackberry fruit, there’s something pinched about the mouthfeel. It’s a good wine that will benefit from airing, but doesn’t seem likely to improve in the cellar.
