Spice and clay notes grace this earthy Cabernet-led wine that sports black cherry, berry and earth notes. The palate is forward and grabby, with rubbery tannins to go with flavors of roasted berries, plum sauce, chocolate and savory spices. A no-hiccup Cabernet (with 12% Cab Franc) with just enough ruggedness to avoid being commonplace.
