Herbal overtones of tomato leaf and wild thyme vie with roasted, crusty berry aromas on the nose of this full-bodied, traditional Cab. The mouthfeel is full but not punishing or overly tannic. Flavors of herbal berry fruits and plum are a touch stalky, while the finish hits with oaky notes of vanilla and spice along with a final touch of tomato and herbs. Drink through 2019.
