A rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with a beautiful expression of power and grace. Sweet black cherries and cassis aromas continue on the palate with a flood of mouth filling viscosity and gentle tannins. An incredibly lush mid-palate leaves an impression of berry, all-spice and chocolate covered cherries, leading to a long, velvety finish.
