Medium-bodied. The complete package:
Fruit: Juicy redcurrant jelly, dark plum (and plum acidity), fresh rhubarb.
Acidity: ‚ÄòJust right‚Äô ‚Äì a lively and lifted conveyance from initial lip-contact to sated ingestion.
Tannins: Integrated, polished-graphite tannins
Oak: Seamlessly hidden/concealed oak. Melding well with fruit.
Overall, cabernet balance and definition, sans exaggeration.
Instantly cabernet, exposed by fragrant violet, lavender, blue fruits and a waft of red apple blossom.
And yet there‚Äôs much more with scented illuminations of:
Baked delights ‚Äì Danish pastry/croissant and rye bread crust.
A Mediterranean ratatouille ‚Äì laced with thyme, oregano and pulped olive.
Chamois, new-buck leather.
Cedar ‚Äì yet any oak presence certainly respectful of fruit.
