Aromas of black currant, cherry, dark plum and violets are balanced by notes of sage, fennel, olives, black tea and tobacco—all layered over soft, fine-grained tannins. Rich, round and robust, this wine showcases ripe, concentrated flavors of strawberry jam, molasses and anise notes complemented by chocolate. Cherry tobacco notes with a hint of vanilla on the balanced finish.  WINERY

Red fruit is unleashed in a bath of violets and the perfume stays through the palate. High-toned acidity shows a youthfulness – but in a bold, mineral-driven expression. Graphite and leather waltz in mid-palate. Elegance reigns…and over-delivers in this red.  TASTING PANEL

The star of the lineup is the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon and it’s another well made, charming wine from this label that has plenty to recommend. Impressive notes of cassis, lead pencil, and graphite all give way to a medium to full-bodied Cabernet that has ripe tannin, some smoky oak, and a good finish. Aged 22 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak, drink it over the coming 4-5 years.  JEB DUNNUCK
