This wine offers tremendous value for the quality in the bottle, from a cult-worthy site on an ancient, imploded volcano. The 2017 vintage melds red fruit and dark fruit character (most vintages favor one or the other) with hints of caramel and violets. A velvet-smooth entry carries a satisfying thread of mouthwatering acidity that keeps everything playful and balanced, with just enough structure to ensure ageworthiness and youthful enjoyment alike.
Lots of ripe-fruit aromas of crushed currants and raspberries with some sandalwood and violets. Medium to full body with round, juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Very fruity cab, but not overdone. Drink or hold.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up vibrant scents of crushed blackcurrants, black raspberries and redcurrant jelly with hints of pencil shavings, red roses and menthol plus a waft of dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a great intensity of crunchy black fruits with lots of red berry accents and a fine-grained texture, finishing with great length and freshness.
