A superlative vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon on the mountain has given us a phenomenally extracted wine with uncommon depth of ruby color. In fact, a common description is that it’s darker than ink. This Cabernet literally gushes with ripe aromas of black cherries and blackberry, punctuated by mountain spiciness of mint and camphor. Broad and expansive on the mid-palate, flavors of roasted espresso and layers of chocolate mingle with soft supple tannins that pleasantly coat the mouth and betray the wine’s youth at bottling. These flavors linger seemingly forever in the finish. The bottle aging potential for this Cabernet Sauvignon can be measured in decades.
