This is always the hardest wine to describe because I can never figure out what not to say about it. At first sniff, it covers the entire fruit spectrum veering from red to purple to black. There is a dried herb/crushed rock combo that screams Oakville Cabernet on the nose. Because of the structure, this too has a lightness to the front of the palate that belies the density of the finish. The palate feels almost ethereal until the densely packed purple fruits come in on the finish to remind you of the origin of the wine.
Smooth and graceful, with rich dark berry, licorice and light loamy earth notes to keep your attention, ending with a long, lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2030. 200 cases made.
