100% Cabernet Sauvignon Aged 20 months in 100% new French Barrique 14.5% alcohol The nose here is quite marked by spicy wood and candied, toasted oak tones but there is still sufficient fruit to balance the load. This is youthful and brooding with savory tones of earth and olive rising above the deep, dark berry fruit core. This enters the mouth rather tightly with lots of extract and more than obvious oak. While a bit closed feeling there is a core of rich, dark fruit that supports the fine but abundant tannins. The backend is dominated by tannin and a slight bitterness, but that would seem to be due to the wines immaturity as the overall feel is one of fine balance that blends richness, power and freshness. This needs a few years to sort itself out but should be a fine, complex example of Cabernet in due time. 2014-2025 92pts
