80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon opens up with black currant, lilac, hickory and wet stones on the nose. The palate packs flavors of black cherry, chocolate torte, and nutmeg into a rich and chewy midpalate. This wine is incredibly focused on the long finish but lightens with a citrusy topnote at the very end.
