TASTING NOTES Aromas of mocha, blackberries, tobacco and anise. Flavors of dark fruits, vanilla and spice. Inky purple color. 2012 was an excellent vintage—warm days and cool nights yielded near perfect conditions. This Cabernet is big and bold with a beautiful texture, broad palate and long finish.
