This is a big, concentrated mountain cabernet that purely reflects a beautiful vintage. The wine is laced with chocolate, caramel and savory spices. Dark fruit flavors of blackberry, black currant and cassis dominate the aromas with a hint of minerality that adds intrigue. On the palate its full-bodied entry delivers loads of chewy tannins and a re-statement of the black fruit, chocolate, licorice a nuance of stony mineral. Excellent weight on the mid-palate leads to an elegant and persistent finish. Drink 2010 - 2020 or decant 2 to 3 hours before service.
