2018 Vintage- This wine has an intensely dark center with a deep-garnet rim. Inviting nose of toasty spice, tobacco and classic Cabernet cassis. These flavors follow through on the palate, backed by vanilla oak flavors from the barrel maturation. Juicy red wine gum flavors on the palate provide a lingering, lengthy finish. Petit Verdot adds velvety tannins and a ripe blackberry note.
