There's plenty of good (not great) things going on in this blend of 85% Cabernet and 15% Merlot, although value isn't one of them. This is racy and high in acidity, with ample wood shown via cedary aromas. In the mouth, it's tight and rambunctious, with racy acids and herbal, oaky flavors of red berries, spice and herbs. This is a staunch, wiry wine that should age well. Drink from 2014–2020.
