Tasting Notes

Pretty aromas of red cherries, clove and dried herbs open to flavors of black cherry and smooth tannins. The tannins are balanced but still structured by beautiful acidity, hinting at this wine’s longevity. Flavors of tart cherry, dusty cocoa and tobacco linger on the long finish. A polished Cabernet Sauvignon that is drinking beautifully now but still has a long life ahead, particularly in large format. Decant and enjoy immediately or allow to breathe for an hour. Drink through 2026 in 750mL bottles and 2031 in 1.5L magnum bottles, as well as 3L through 2036 and 6L through 2041.
