Lightly herbal aromas of cola, forest floor, chocolate and berry are attractive. In the mouth, this is linear and tangy, with sharp acidity and grabbing tannins. Flavors of pie cherry, plum and oak are drawing, while the finish is more scratchy than substantive. For a Cabernet-dominated wine from 2008, this is very good.
