This is Cabernet Sauvignon 94.5%, Carmenere 3%, and Syrah 2.5%. Purple at the core with ruby color at the outside, mostly clear and bright. The nose has black cherries, cassis and slight pencil lead and cedar. Full bodied. On the palate, black cherries, cassis and char. Slightly complex. Nice balance. Long finish. This should improve a bit over the next year or two and drink well for seven to ten more after that. A truly excellent value in Cabernet. Delicious on its own, this will work well with roasted vegetables, meats or fowl.
