"This is a dense, firm, and fleshy Cabernet Sauvignon, with all the texture and complexity you look for in a young Napa Valley wine. It is nearly opaque purple-ruby color with initially closed aromas, hinting at the brooding dark notes to come. The nose opens to blackberry, black cherry, and subtle pencil box aromas from the quality French oak barrels. In the mouth, the wine starts fat, fleshy, and dense with French oak well-integrated into the ripe grapiness. Flavors of blackberries, chocolate, coffee, and hints of dark caramel are layered until the end of the long finish. The black fruit and barrel spice are balanced with proper hints of herbs. Tannins are very fine and firm, but not gripping, enveloped in the fat, dense mouthfeel and only needing time to soften." ~ Winery notes
