Tasting Notes
Yoga for the Palate! Permit this wine to open for a while. As the name Helix implies, let this Cabernet go round and round on your palate while sitting straight and relaxed. Without swallowing, slowly inhale once or twice to unravel the black raspberry, plum and cassis layered with caramelized oak, a barely perceptible hint of clove and very fine tannins. Exhale. Life is goood.
