Solid Sonoma Cab. Pleasant nose of stewed berries, cedar and vanilla. Well balanced on the palate with lovely medium tannins.

Smooth, rich, sweet baking notes. Paired perfect with Bittersweet chocolate.

Upon opening, the first thought that came to mind was "chocolate". What a wonderful aroma. Full bodied, yet smooth.

Big fruity bouquet on the nose. Awesome structure and you can really feel the time in oak. 21 months did well for this beauty
