Dark ruby hue. Aromas run wild from concentrated red and black cherry, to cassis and cranberry, with undertones of olive tapenade, tar, licorice, graphite, pepper. Full-bodied on the palate, but not heavy, the fruit and spice combination in this wine is dazzling. Firm tannins drive the finish of this cashmere-smooth Cab, is great now but destined to improve in the cellar.
