About

86

"We like the balance and structure of this mid-sized Cabernet, and we like its basic direction, yet, while it speaks to ripe cherries and lightly toasty oak, it lags just a bit in terms of real stuffing and depth. It hits most of the right marks without excelling at any, and its slight shortfall in filling and flesh prescribes no more than a few years of additional cellar time."

Product Description:

"A luscious cascade of dark fruit, including black currant, black cherry, plum, and blackberry complemented by sweet vanilla and baking spices. Flavors: Rich, round, and full-bodied; layered with blackberry, cherry, dried plums, and a hint of cocoa; generous weight on the palate and smooth, mouth-filling tannins; the finish lingers with flavors of rich cassis and black cherry." -Winery
