This is their middle level Cabernet. Purple in color, some ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose is great with cassis, coffee, graphite, dark chocolate and spice. Full bodied. Medium tannins. Good balance. On the palate, this is seriously good. Lush cassis, graphite and spice. This drinking great and should continue for ten to fifteen more years. Great on its own, it will work great with Prime Rib.
