Well-made and dancing in acidity, this Cabernet is juicy in notes of red currant and pomegranate, yet slightly exotic on the back palate, with hints of cardamom and cinnamon. Layered without being overly concentrated, the wine is built to age like its bigger brother (the Family Reserve), able to hold on and build nuance through 2020.
