The nose is rich, ripe, round with a gummy fruit quality. Dark currants and cassis. Ripe & lush fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, strawberries, black plum, ollieberries, soft well layered baking spices, vanilla, cinnamon, clove, sweet, dark spice, mixed berry cola, crush dry rock powder, dark rich soils, bay leaf/dry herbs and dark fresh dark floral bouquet.

The body is full but so soft and elegant and glides so beautifully over the palate. Ripe, blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, strawberries, black plum, ollieberries, soft well layered baking spices, vanilla, cinnamon, clove, sweet, dark spice, mixed berry cola, crush dry rock powder, dark rich soils, bay leaf/dry herbs and dark fresh dark floral bouquet. The acidity is excellent. The structure, tension, length are really harmonious so young. The finish is so well balanced, elegant, rich ripe and goes on & on.

Chocolate forward. Plentiful, but agreeable tanins. Traditional Cabernet flavors or notes of beef blood, leather, graphite, dark fruits, and spices

Big, ripe, dark cherries with a full bodied decadent mouth feel. Fantastic!

This “Grand Daddy” was served with filet and though very young is certainly a great wine. Extremely smooth with no aftertastes. Plenty of berries and earthy tones. No alcoholic tastes. Beautiful bouquet.
