This is a seriously beefy, unapologetic California Cabernet. Opaque inky purple in color. Intense nose highlighted by creme de cassis, blackberries, pastry, and spicy, smokey oak. (It was aged in 100% new oak.) Full and rich in the mouth with plenty of flavor to dominate the alcohol. Lots of tannin, but on the round side; mouth-coating texture. Long finish brings out the berry and smoke elements. Big, juicy, Cab that's really fun wine to drink. - HK 2014-11-30
