A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 20-plus-year-old vines, this wine is nearly black in color and balanced between rich dark cherry and blueberry fruit and more savory layers of tart cranberry and cherry. It's tightly wound and grippy, the oak providing structure and strength, with a finish of tobacco. Let age through 2020.
