Mostly Klipsun and Ciel du Cheval fruit, this sleek Cabernet delivers focused, clear scents emphasizing youthful notes of berry, cherry and plum. The styling is compact and elegant, a pleasing mix of youthful fruit and compressed, tannic power. This is very tight, but still supple and rewarding. Decanting is recommended.
