Wine Tasting Notes
This Cabernet has distinct flavors of blackberry, blueberry, and both red and black currants with enticing fragrances of mocha and nutmeg. Subtle notes of chocolate and toasty vanillins add to the richness and length of this bold Cab, and are accompanied by fine grained tannins on a lengthy finish.
