The wine is intensely vermillion red in color. The 8% Petit Verdot enriches the color with some violet hues, while the 7% Malbec contributes to gain aromatic expression and to soften the mouthfeel. This is a beautiful and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that delights with black fruit aromas like cassis, currants and sweet tobacco character. It is a medium- to full-bodied wine, with firm still soft tannins and a classy ending. It is an elegant and juicy wine, with some kisses of ground black pepper.
Cedar, vanilla, tobacco and earthy aromas blend with mellow berry scents to form a welcoming nose. This feels wide and blocky but healthy and balanced. Flavors of berry, herbs and spice are prototypical Cabernet flavors, while a spicy, peppery, dry finish gives a classey ending. MS, Wine Enthusiast Editior.
