"...delivers a beautifully refined nose of sweet cassis, black cherries, tobacco leaf, dark soil tones, a touch of violets, a very judicious framing of new oak, and just a wisp of youthful cabernet leafiness in the upper register that is totally beguiling."
The wine opens with rose petals, lavender, and black cherry, with herbal aromas of cedar, tobacco, and mint giving the wine an earthy freshness to accompany the floral notes. Harmonious and focused in the mouth, the fine-grained and integrated tannins support a nervy spine of acidity and understated dark fruit sweetness. This is a cabernet sauvignon of medium weight with a balance between richness and tension. Fermented entirely in closed-head French oak, and then drained and aged for 20 months in 60% new wood.
