A delicious, soft red with medium body and lovely berry, chocolate and hazelnut aromas and flavors. Soft, creamy finish. A beautiful wine now. 89% cabernet sauvignon, 6% petit verdot, 3% malbec and 2% merlot.
90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec and 2% Merlot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored with a charry, herbal, earthy nose with baked berries, meat and tobacco scents. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy with an herbal streak, it finishes just a tad hard but not bad.
Optimal conditions for fermentation and barrel aging produced a dark ruby wine with inviting aromas of cinnamon, blueberry, blackberry, vanilla, and cedar. A juicy mid-palate shows flavors of cherry and layers of texture. The natural sweetness of the fruit balances the bright acidity and follows through to the lingering coffee and vanilla cream-laced finish.
