    A nice California Cabernet nose. Strong and with full luscious red and dark fruits notes like dark plum, ripe cherry, raspberry.   Medium wood influence, with vanilla, milky chocolate, peppery spices and cinnamon. Lovely overall nose.

  • Palate

    Full body and a rich mouthfeel with plums, berries and cherry notes. Medium tannins and medium acidity. The wood influence is there but not overpowering. Subtle aromas of ceder wood, vanilla and caramel  with lingering milky chocolate and coffee aromas. The peppery spices are there in the back on the tongue, more like soft black pepper.

    Medium finish with a creamy soft coffee, vanilla, ripe berry and  plum aromas.  At the end a hint of peppery note.
