At 85% Cabernet, this one starts off mildly hot and heavy, with pungent brambly aromas and a leathery, spicy undercurrent. The plum and raspberry flavors are overt, and it finishes with a slight burn. Aeration settles it down and softens it up, leaving a wine more akin to Pinot Noir than to Cabernet.
