Aromas of cherry and plum with hints of violet, leather and saw dust. The palate is full-bodied and rich with flavors of ripe blackberry, dark cherry and cassis supported by full tannins and notes of vanilla and toasty spice on a complex, long finish. Pairs perfectly with venison Bolognese or chocolate mousse cheesecake.
This widely available Cab is always hedonistically satisfying, clicking all the rich and delicious buttons for a reliably enjoyable experience. Aromas of cassis, caramel and black cherry cola on the nose lead into a creamy palate where polished tannins present hefty blackberry flavors, with marjoram, wood smoke and sagebrush elements adding complexity.
