This is a nicely youthful, fruit style of cabernet with jammy blackberry/currant fruit plus tea and light, spicy oak. It's medium weight, quite juicy and warm with quite light tannin considering it's cabernet. An approachable style that avoids confection. The length is good to very good. Best now to 2019. Score - 88. (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Oct. 19, 2016)
This dry, full-bodied and woody red displays a complex and intense nose. On the palate, its refreshing acidity, fleshy tannins, and broad texture precede a long finish.
Notes of almonds, mocha, coconut and hints of spearmint. Well-balanced.
Lush aromas of juicy black fruit, dark chocolate and soft brown spice follow through to deep flavors of ripe berries and black tea; all well-structured with supple, round tannins and a full, satisfying finish.
Vivid aromas of blackberries, fresh plum and chocolate follow through to rich flavors of black cherries, fresh berry pie and notes of black tea. The wine is well structured with a juicy mouthfeel and a full, lingering finish.
