Deep garnet in color.Aroma:
Lush aromas of warm blueberry, dried cherry, brown sugar and allspice with hints of licorice, briary and toasty oak.Palate:
The entry of this Cabernet Sauvignon is silky, smooth and supple. A subtle minerality complements flavors of black cherry, fresh strawberry and star anise. This wine is well-structured with velvety tannins and a lasting finish.Vintage Notes:
The 2007 growing season exhibited many exceptional indicators that began with early bud break, followed by mild spring and summer weather patterns, thus extending ripening periods for many varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon. Low winter rainfall and a mild summer with few heat spikes fostered even grape ripening. The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon were picked mid to late September.
