Excellent, Highly Recommended
This is a wine full of toasty cedar, fresh black currant, and green mint aromatics. The palate combines these flavors with a touch of dark chocolate and ground coffee bean. Soft tannins give the wine a dry finish."

"Deep purple color. Mild, fruity aromas and flavors of dark berry pie, peanut brittle, brown butter, and dried lavender with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an interesting, medium-length cassis gelato, brown spices, cocoa, and cedar mulch finish with chewy, woody tannins and moderate oak. A very nice cabernet with chewy table-friendly tannins."
