Lifted nose of dark cherry skins backed by hints of wood spices, leather and earth. Medium bodied palate. Red fruit, oak, tannin and acid are well integrated, giving the wine a velvety texture. Drinking beautifully now though should go for a couple of years more.

Given the brand recognition of this wine, you might expect it to taste like a California cabernet, but in fact it is one of the more classic-seeming wines in this whole bunch. Crisp, almost tart in texture, with perfumed, cherry aromas. Lots of earth and funk on the palate.
