The first impression of this classic Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is made by the rich garnet color with bright purple rim. The nose delivers black, fleshy stone fruits followed by a hint of black licorice and complex mixed layers of crushed-stone minerality, ash, cigar wrapper, sage and turmeric. The mouth feel is generous up front and very creamy, with black cherry, plum and pomegranate. Flavors evolve into a mineral profile of wet concrete and peat. The finish is a mix of bay leaves, lavender, rhubarb and oaky notes. Overall, this vintage is more restrained, more European in style. But thanks to the high acidity level in this wine, it will age really nicely and thrive with cellar time.
