Blackberry, vegetal, herbal, with greenery. Some smokiness on the nose with black licorice. It's great to have an alternative of comparable quality to Napa Cabernet. In terms of $/points this punches way above its weight. To me, this is a very slightly better version of Faust Cab.

A classic Bordeaux style blend dominated by 82% Cab Sauv with Merlot, Petit Verdot & Cab Franc from several estate vineyards. Aged for 19 months in 30% new French Oak. Deep Ruby, aromas of fresh berry fruits with cedar and spice. On the palate sweet blackberry and blueberry fruit, with savory oak & cacao notes. Smooth sweet tannins, savory, with an herb & mineral touch on the long finish. Nice! A Fav! Good value! Tasting Sample! — 2 years ago

This is a tasty Napa Cabernet. Rich, extracted and elegant.
Showing blackberries, black currants, raisins, sweet cherries, chocolates, cedar, vanilla, coffee, earth, light vegetables, bitter herbs and peppercorn.
Full-bodied and elegant with medium acidity.
Long finish with round tannins.
Needed a few hours of decanting, which I did not have at this time.
Still very young, but already enjoyable. Needs 3 years in the bottle to mature properly, and will age nicely in the next 10 years.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
