NOSE - Huge, powerful; layer on layer of spice, cedar, earth, and tobacco, all over a rich base of ripe black cherry, blackcurrants, cassis and blueberry jam.
PALATE - Rich, round, juicy and mouth coating, the palate delivers black cherry and blackcurrant before moving on to brighter red fruits. More subtle tones of butterscotch, anise, and sweet oak complement the fruit beautifully.
FINISH - The huge classic structure of fine grain tannin and firm acidity persist all the way through to a clean, crisp, spicy finish.
BLEND – 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc
BARREL AGING – 20 months, 100% French oak, 28% new.
