An opaque purple hue matches the incredibly dense layered dark fruit of this powerful wine. Blackberry, boysenberry, plumb, cassis and mocha aromas are followed by subtle notes of anise, tobacco, and baking spice. A deeply structured palate with graceful tannins and an inordinately lingering finish with wet stone and mint as a parting aromatic gift. This vintage is beautiful in its infancy but is clearly built for aging.

 Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
and deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon opens somewhat
reluctantly with cedar and baking spice scents, eventually giving way to a tantalizing core
of Black Forest cake, blackcurrant cordial and candied violets with a waft of black
raspberries. The tightly wound, medium to full-bodied palate is taut with ripe black fruits
and a fine-grained textured, delivering loads of perfumed layers on the long finish.
Stunning.
