This is is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petite Verdot. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose is great with cassis, pencil lead, cedar and spice. Medium to full bodied. Firm tannins. On the palate, this is a big but not over sized Cab. Lots of cassis with some char and minerality. Drinking well now but may still improve a bit. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years. Great on its own, this would be a classic pairing with a roast or steak.
