This medium-bodied old-vine Cabernet surprises with rich aromas of black currant, cassis, pepper, tobacco, and a delightful hint of mint. Barrel aging in French and American Oak lead to bold flavors of black cherry, floral hints, and anise that delight the palate, and the velvety-soft tannins and hints of chocolate and plum deliver a smooth, satisfying finish that makes you look forward to the next sip.
Best with: Savoury first courses, red meat and game, mature cheese
