This vintage was noted by a very warm growing season across the board and the finished wine is a very dark-fruited and structured Cabernet Sauvignon. In the glass the wine displays a nearly opaque purple-ruby hue. Aromas suggest tart red fruit, clove, vanilla husk and an exotic spice component. Palate notes are decidedly bramble-focused, with lingering aromatic wood and purple flowers. The tannins are firm but even and provide a nice black tea component, both in mouth feel and flavor. The finish is very light and clean, thanks to a refreshing acid framework. This wine will show best after a few hours in the decanter or 3-5 years in the cellar.
