Cedar, spice and ripe dark cherry aromas welcome further investigation. A soft smooth entry leads to flavors of blackberry, ripe cherry and a firm but balanced mouthfeel. Tannins are integrated and matched with crisp acidity. The finish is lasting with a pleasant return of the initial fruit and spice components. This wine is delicious now and will gain further complexity with bottle age.
A young, tough, gutsy Cabernet marked by extracted, jammy fruit flavors of blackberries and chocolate, sturdy tannins and elaborate oak. All the pieces are fine, but nothing has come together. Needs time. Give it until after 2011.
