Medium+ intensity aromatics deliver currant, cassis, herbs, and oak spice characters on the nose and palate. It's full-bodied with smooth, dense, chewy tannins with some chalkiness. More herbally on the mid-palate with balanced acids. Very good length on the finish. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec. Tasted Oct/2019.
