The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is dried for 86 days then tucked away in all-new French oak barrels for 22 months and finished at 16% abv. It has a showy and concentrated nose of blackcurrant jam, blackberries, cherries, graphite, earth, tar, bramble and a crazy array of barrel spice notes. It shows waves of bountiful dark fruits, kirsch and raspberry accents, and a wall of tannins assertive enough to curl your tongue until the next sip. This wine is only beginning to show itself — those fine oak spices, sweet tobacco notes and mélange of lush fruit. Cellar 5+ years.
