Aroma: A delicious mélange of dark black berries, dark-roast espresso and hints of anisette opens up to reveal underlying warm mineral notes, cassis, violets and spice.
Flavors: Signature black and red fruit flows freely across the palate, entwined with more espresso, dark chocolate, and touches of violet and licorice. A warm mineral component echoes the wine’s foothills heritage.
Finish: Firm, supple tannins along the base of the wine keep the luscious fruit aloft through a generous finish, bolstered by crisp acidity.
General: A dense, racy and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that is the perfect match for a ribeye.
