*Cellar Selection* The winemakers call this their Pauillac-style wine, meaning that its character is marked by Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s a brilliant wine, vastly deep, imposing and elegant, with a potent mountain flavor of black currant. The estate vineyard is very high in the Mayacamas Mountains, and you can sense the small size of the berries in the wines intensity, the sheer concentration, as well as the tannins--which are hard and tight. Clearly this is a wine that requires time in the cellar. Try in 2018, but it could worth aging well beyond that.
Red-ruby. Currant, graphite, minerals, leather and tobacco leaf on the nuanced nose. Nicely ripe and intense, with a supple texture and a subtle sweetness to the redcurrant, tobacco, espresso and licorice flavors. I like the combination of depth and juiciness here. Finishes with serious ripe tannins and lovely chocolatey persistence. Attractive already owing to its complexity but has the stuffing and balance for a graceful evolution in bottle. (ST)
