Ruby/purple in color. The nose has cassis, cherries, cedar and spice. Medium to full bodied. On the palate, this has nice fruit in a more restrained mode. Cherries and cassis with cedar. Medium tannins. Decent balance. Slightly clipped finish. This is a more restrained style of Cab but drinks well right now. Not sure if it will make older bones so I would drink in the next five years.
