Cherry and earth aromas have a hint of leather, which adds rusticity to the wine. Can't-miss notes of clove and nutmeg seriously bolster flavors of cherry and plum, and by the time the finish rolls around, that clove quality is magnified. Ultimately this is a spicy, leaner Cab, but good acids and tannins keep it upright.
