Gloriously aromatic with sublime aromas that leap from the glass. An intensely beautiful bouquet of black plums, dark exotic spices, roses and deep black fruit engulf the senses. The first sip reveals the massive proportions of this voluptuous Cabernet. A big, soft mouthful of crushed blackberries, dark cherries and sweet oak, linger and seduce the palate. Bursting with rich valley floor fruit, this Cabernet is intensely pleasurable now but will continue to evolve with bottle age.
