Good dark red. Subdued, rather loamy aromas of red plum, currant, mocha and tobacco leaf. Fine-grained, supple and vinous, but its moderate fruit sweetness is reduced by menthol and herb character. The wine's substantial broad, dusty tannins turn a bit dry, even peppery, on the back end. But this Cabernet still retains good savory energy, and a subtle sweetness to its red fruit flavors.

Once again this is a big wine, with lots of age left in it. Rich, dark, full bodied. Cassis, black plums,tobacco, and leather. A hint of alcohol burn, but just a hint. I still loved it.

Plummy fruit, perfume-y. Soft and silky, plum fruit and lightly tannic finish.
