A work in progress. Deep red with purple tones and aromas of juicy black fruits and herb spice. A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot and aged for 20 months in French oak (75% new). On the palate blueberry and blackberry flavors with notes of cacao, espresso and oak. Well balanced with tight firm tannins that need to develop. Lingering finish ending with earthy tones. Should be great in 5 years, put a couple in your cellar.

Not a bad cab. I would get it again but wouldn't pay $40 for it.

Pnp. Aged well and at its peak if not downward slide but still has a couple solid more years of drinking. Elegant black and blue fruits with some tobacco and leather.
