Vibrant deep red colour typical of this variety, this wine displays great elegance and balance in the nose. Ripe fruit aromas evoke prunes, strawberries, and cherries intertwined with spicy notes, such as black pepper, tobacco, and sweet red pepper. The palate reveals an exceptionally powerful wine with the characteristic round and opulent tannins from grapes grown in this unique terroir. A pleasant and persistent finish displays more red fruit notes, but this time, intertwined with vanilla and chocolate from oak aging.
88 Points - Wine Enthusiast Standard Cabernet aromas of dark plum and berry fruits set up a clamping palate, with grating tannins. Smoky dark-plum and blackberry flavors finish rough and tough, with mild heat and unresolved tannins that grate and grind. Time in the bottle will only help this along; drink through 2028.
