Wine Advocate

A blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petite Sirah and 8% Malbec, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lion Tamer is a little closed to begin, giving way to earthy scents of tilled black soil, charcoal, truffles and crushed rocks over a core of warm cassis, plum preserves, cigar box and camphor. Full-bodied and densely packed with juicy black fruits and earthy sparks, it has a lovely line of freshness and a firm level of grainy tannins to support, finishing long with a minty kick.
