A heady 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for two years in oak, this cassis-kissed wine also offers black olive and spicy, peppery layers. Balanced and on the lighter side of the ripeness coin, it possesses plenty of grip on the finish, suggesting that cellaring could conjure more magic. Dry after 2018.
