A juicy, friendly style, with a mix of cassis and cherry preserves backed by a red licorice echo through the light toasty finish. Drink now through 2019.
90 pts Wine Enthusiast 'Best Buy' March 2019
This shows moderate scents of ripe black plum, blueberry and raspberry that ride over subtle hints of blackcurrant leaf, bramble and pressed purple flowers. Medium weight and smooth on the palate, it boasts crushed-velvet tannins. The medium-length finish offers a solid fruit presence that veers toward berry compote and crumble, with lingering sweet spice.



Winemaker Notes

This delicious, crowd pleasing Cabernet delivers serious bang for the buck! It exhibits ripe blackcurrant and dried herb characters on the nose, which are backed up with some spicy oak notes. The palate is smooth and soft, with beautiful ripe tannins and a long finish.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot
