Very rich, ripe and dramatically textured, this has explosive flavors of blackberry, crème de cassis, dried herb and smoked meat flavors, enriched by smoky oak. It shows the tough, hard tannins you often find in low production mountain Cabernets. Made by the well-known consulting winemaker, Philippe Melka, it has the structure of a wine that needs age. Give it at least eight years, and it could be one that lasts decades.
Firmly tannic and extracted, with a tight, rich mix of dried currant and dark berry flavors that show touches of dried herb and cedar, firming on the finish with fine-grained tannins.
