One for the cellar and a future special occasion, this boisterous wine from Vineyard 29 promises to settle into a stunning Cabernet Sauvignon over the next few years. Ripe with flavors of cherry, currant and crushed flowers paired with spice and minerality. This wine is already a head turner, begging to be enjoyed, but the patient will be rewarded with an even deeper experience after cellaring. Tuck it away now and thank your scout later.
Deep garnet-purple in color, it gives up crème de cassis, plum preserves and blueberry compote with chocolate box, fragrant earth, cigar and bay leaves plus wafts of tapenade and pencil lead. The palate is full-bodied, firm, grainy and quite chewy with a good fruit core and long finish.
