RatingNot Yet Rated

An absolute joy to excavate, this gem of a cab is dense with layers of black fruit and red currant. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a cooler appellation, it’s rich and decadent on the palate with sweet, dark plums dusted in cocoa powder. Robust tannins are well-integrated on the medium body, lifted by a tangy acidity, leading towards a memorable finish of crushed rock.

Tasting Panel

Black, inky earthiness defines the nose and palate, along with a round, silky mouthfeel. Cocoa and dried violets appear against a slightly dusty backdrop, while notes of leather, black olive, and slate are soul-stirring. This vintage is GEO's most elegant to date, but its robust, statuesque character remains intact.
