The density of the deep-garnet color hints at the extraction in this wine. Aromas of spiced cherries dominate the alluring nose, accompanied by cassis, dark plum, and a savory touch of anise. Smooth and juicy on the entry, the palate builds quickly with full mouthfeel and bright acidity. There is a clean elegant progression of lush plum, bright cherry, tart red currant all riding on abundant but not overpowering tannin. The spiced cherries make a reappearance late in the finish. Sit with this one for a while, get to know it, and enjoy the evolution. Elegantly powerful now, this will be a real stunner in 10-15 years.

This delivers a very tightly focused, almost piercing beam of cassis, raspberry coulis and bitter cherry fruit, scored with singed alder and iron notes. Incense and tobacco details chime in on the finish. Long and refined, with the fruit leaving a sweet and mouthwatering echo. Best from 2022 through 2038.

Deep garnet-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a nose of tar, earth and leather over a core of cassis and redcurrants plus pepper hints. The palate is medium-bodied, lean, chewy and a bit simple with a short finish.
