- Silver Medal - World Wine Championships - 12/01/15
Nearly opaque black garnet color. Delicate, fruity, smoky dusty aromas of chocolate, waxy honeycomb, and chocolate nuts with a creamy, bright, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long baked berries, cedar, and peppery spices finish with firm, woody tannins and heavy oak. A brooding, powerful, very oaky cabernet that needs a few years of cellaring.
