WE 88 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Smooth and oaky, this value-minded wine offers varietal notes of cassis and cranberry, with traces of dried herb, cedar and pencil lead. A heftier midpalate strengthens in the glass before a long, clove-infused finish.
Tasting Notes - "Deep garnet. Dark cherry, clove, blackberry, and violets open up in the glass, followed by traces of tobacco. Hints of vanilla and cocoa dust add complexity to the rich aroma. Smooth entry, with lively ripe, fresh berries followed by vanilla and cocoa flavors that fill the palate. Smooth and textural, with generous body and supple tannins. Very well balanced. The finish evokes dark cherry and sage, with hints of allspice and vanilla that linger seamlessly." 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot, & 1% Cabernet Franc. 13.5% ABV.
