This wine has a soft, well balanced, elegant finish with very smooth tannins. As such it is approachable and ready to drink now. Look for nuances of flavors including cigar box, oregano, caramel, dark cinnamon, blackberries, dark cherries, licorice, dark plums and toasted bread.
This is a prime example of the benefits of long- term aging, which softens the sometimes-harsh tannins in Cabernet Sauvignon and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Aged 36 months in 50% new and 50% used French oak barrels.
