This is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Merlot. Purple in color, slight ruby hues, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has cassis, some very smooth oak and spice. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, there is a nice depth and complexity her. Good acidity. This is a really elegant wine that is just delicious. It should continue to mature and perhaps improve over the next seven to ten years and drink well for fifteen more. This would be a great steakhouse wine but will work well with a burger, too.
