This is a juicy, wellintegrated and softly textured red wine, powerfully built in ripe fruit and tannin. Blueberry, cassis and red currant complement the savory mocha edge before a pronounced finish of toasted oak.
Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon is inspired by the shield-shaped block overseeing the entrance to Monte Rosso Vineyard, a site that produces grapes with the layers and power that are the foundation of great Cabernet.
This beautiful, deep crimson colored wine possesses full tannins and intensely concentrated fruit. Savory aromas mix with lavender and dark fruit leading to a rich mouthfeel with waves of dark cherry, blackberry and a touch of spice. The extended finish melds the fruit together with hints of nutty toasted oak, pecan praline and caramel.
