Sweet blackberries, brambleberries and cigar tobacco with fresh flowers. Some cedar and mahogany, too. Full bodied with chewy tannins and chocolate, walnut and lightly toasted flavors. It’s just starting to come around. First commercially released wine from old-vine cabernet sauvignon, grown on its own rootstock with the vast majority from 1910. Originally it was just for the owners to drink. Fantastic. 12,000 bottles made. Drink or hold.
