    Currant, cherry, menthol, tobacco leaf and dried herbs on the nose; I would have guessed this wine had some Cabernet Franc in it. Then lively, suave and fruit-driven in the mouth, with raspberry, redcurrant and cherry flavors lifted by a faint minty element. Distinctly more red than black in its fruit character and quite fine-grained, juicy and graceful. A captivating sweet/savory Cabernet Sauvignon with fine-grained harmonious tannins and lovely floral lift. This is awfully easy to drink right now, but there's no rush. I suspect this will age well on its balance.

    Detailed and refined, with handsomely structured blackberry, coffee bean and black tea flavors that build tension toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2028.
