The aromatics are explosive – high-tone rose petals and toasted espresso beans lead into both red and dark cherry notes. The tension of the vintage can be felt on the palate immediately – a delicate balance of high natural acidity flowing into a rich dense mid palate of silky soft tannins. Red fruit notes of pomegranate and red cherry intertwine with dark sour cherry, soft french plum, and a blackcurrant core. Savory notes of black olive, saddle leather and cigar box frame the fruit tones providing a wonderful interwoven mouthfeel which continues to build into what seems like an everlasting finish.
An impressive red with crushed blackberries, blueberries and cedar. Full-bodied, tight and framed. Beautiful ripe fruit and spices. 95% cabernet sauvignon and 5% petit verdot. Drink or hold. JS 94
