The nose opens on an array of refined ripe black fruit aromas, joined on airing by light toasted hazelnut notes. The palate has ripe black fruit notes found on the nose return on the rich and ample attack, while attractive spice and toast flavors bring remarkable complexity and intensity to the midpalate, underpinned by powerful tannins typical of Cabernet Sauvignon. The black fruit flavors return on the long and fresh finish.
Ripe and well-structured, this features plenty of savory accents to the dark fruit and Asian spice flavors that are backed by firm tannins, with notes of chocolate nibs on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 9,900 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
