    Winemaker Notes
    Pleasant aroma of dried herbs and fruit. With time in the glass the fruit evolves, showing ripe black raspberry richness with notes of red cherry, and eclipses the herbal component. The lively fruit follows in the mouth with a touch of herbs to bring a nice complexity. Young but supple, elegant tannin adds richness and rounds out the mouthfeel. It extends nicely into the long, enjoyable, fruit driven finish where the herbs make yet another appearance to echo their addition to this stylish Cabernet. Though approachable now, it will improve nicely with age for 8 to 10 years.
