This is a single-vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that's dark as night and still closed up. It wants to be big, but the fruit is presently in the rear, and you have to search for it. Once you find it, it's fairly clean cassis and blackberry, with pronounced oak backing it up. Nicely herbal and cool, the finish turns fairly tannic. Get after it next year.
