Blackcurrants, brambleberries, toasted walnuts, spice box, sandalwood and dried flowers on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Structured and precise with tight layers of dark fruit and spice. Focused. Drink or hold.
The 2018 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon starts with a firm, dusty and juicy nose with aromas of tasty black cherry, wilted lavender and roses with elements of redcurrants and crème de cassis. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is juicy and features dusty tannins, with flavors of black plum and juicy black Raspberry skin across the mid-palate. The Cabernet concludes with firm, tannic edge and a lingering flavor of crème de violette. This rested for 20 months in French oak, 40% new, and represents a great value for the price.
