The wine is deep inky in color, mild on the nose. On the mid pallet this wine has some deep fruit flavors but this is by no means a fruit forward or a sweet wine. This wine is all about the finish.

Tasting Note
This is truly an exceptional value for Cabernet from Sonoma. Opaque ruby in colour, it’s bursting with layered aromas of ripe cassis, raspberry, plum, cocoa and vanilla. It’s dry, with ample body and intense black fruit and spicy oak flavours supported by supple tannins, all culminating in a long, smooth finish. Very easy to love. (VINTAGES panel, Aug. 2009)

Here’s what had to say about it:
14.5% alcohol A deep red this wine offers a plethora of aromas—black currant attractive leafiness cedar and hints of eucalyptus. Its beautifully structured and well integrated with tangy acidity and silky drying tannins. Loads of lush dark fruit rush across the palate and carry through on the lingering finish that teases with hints of toasty oak and cocoa. (Susan Desjardins) (161190) $17.95 Rating 4.5/5
