This beautifully complex “Old Vines” Cabernet Sauvignon shows amazing sophistication. It expresses the purity of fully mature cabernet sauvignon fruit that can only be achieved from old vine fruit. The color is dark blackish purple. Intermingling aromas of baking spice, cedar, graphite and ripe blackberries develop in the glass. Flavors of black fruits blend beautifully with pencil, cigar box and exotic spice of new French oak. The texture is soft but firm with beautifully integrated tannins offering a rich, long finish. This wine will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should last ten years or more.
