This is the basic Cab from Mending Wall whose winemaker is Thomas RIvers Brown. A delicious Cab that is drinking very well right now. Purple in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is great with cassis, gravel and spice. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, solid cassis fruit over a gravelly base. This should continue to drink well for the next decade or so. A nice match with grilled or roasted meats or veggies.
