Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The wine exhibits a deep ruby color, almost verging on opaque. A swirl in the glass reveals viscous, slow-moving legs, indicative of the wine's substantial body and alcohol content.
The aromatic profile is complex yet harmonious, filled with a burst of ripe blackcurrant, black cherry, and plum, all subtly accented by a well-integrated layer of vanilla and mocha—thanks to its well-judged oak aging.
Upon tasting, the first impression is one of well-defined fruit character. Layers of dark fruit flavors—blackberries, cherries, and currants—are present, juxtaposed against a backdrop of well-structured tannins and balanced acidity. Secondary notes include hints of spice, cedar, and a wisp of tobacco, adding complexity and depth.
The finish is long and sustained, with the dark fruit flavors giving way to more earthy and oaky nuances. A mild spiciness persists, closing with a velvety smoothness that invites another sip.
This Cabernet Sauvignon has a full-bodied mouthfeel, round and plush, making it highly approachable even while displaying remarkable depth and complexity.
