This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is very strong in blackberries, black currants and cedar. It’s also quite tannic. Clearly a rich, well-grown wine, but marked by immaturity, with unintegrated sweet fruit and oak flavors. Needs a good six years to start to knit together.
Nicely dry and elegantly structured, a streamlined Cab with flavors of sour blackberry candy, bitter chocolate, herbs, sandalwood and spices. Loses a few points due to a sweaty smell.
