Tasting Notes

Fruit and oak are seamlessly integrated in this complex and balanced Cabernet. Smokey aromas of cassis, black cherries, leather, and cedar greet you upon entry. Once on the palate, the wine displays flavors of ripe cherries, cocoa, espresso, mint, and warm spices. The long tannins provide just enough grip to hold all the nuanced components together.

Food Pairing

This Cabernet will pair wonderfully with lamb, venison, beef, and rich cheeses.
