Pure and rich, with a deep, concentrated core of extracted blackberry, currant, black licorice, dusty, loamy earth, graphite, cedar and espresso flavors. Ends long, smooth and well-defined. Drink now through 2030

Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is deep garnet-purple in color with bold, expressive cassis, chocolate covered cherries and cinnamon stick notes plus underlying dusty earth, dried herbs, pepper and garrigue suggestions. Full-bodied, firm and slowly evolving, it is packed with black fruit and savory layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and earthy.
