This Oakville Cabernet is as tense and tightly drawn as a young wine. It bristles with the tannin of expensive oak, a cover over more vinous elements of fresh cherry. The care of the crafting is clear, but the wine remains hidden, needing several years of age for the fruit to absorb the oak.
Bright ruby-red. Redcurrant, truffle, tobacco and a whiff of leather on the nose. Supple, smooth and round, with easygoing flavors of dark berries, truffle, licorice, espresso and chocolate. Finishes with dusty, slightly drying tannins and a lingering note of chocolate. (ST)
Very dark and young now—this wine needs to be cellared. It's powerfully tannic, with a burst of acidity; the mouthfeel is dusty and astringent.
Smoke, herb and currant aromas carry over to the palate, where they are tightly wound and supported by cedary oak and firm, ripe tannins. Good concentration and balance, showing a measure of restraint. (JL)
