Tasting Notes
Deciphering the complexity of this Cabernet’s nose is an adventurous, ever evolving expedition. Black currant, plum, black raspberry, blackberry, licorice, violet, roasted red pepper, coriander/nutmeg, a touch of fleshiness, gravel, and Chambord/cassis…

Black raspberry and cassis dominate the nose of this garnet colored Cabernet with a whiff of coriander, black violets, orange peel and fresh cut sirloin rubbed with a pinch of white pepper. Plum, dark cherry and black fruits dominate the palate with fine grain tannins that possess a hint of vanilla and dust accompanied by black olive, a scraping of graphite and bolstered by a hit of dry Chambord and sweet aromatic pipe tobacco… excellent with a grilled well-marbled steak.
