100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2017 McQueen presents a vibrant mix of violet pastilles, charred black fruits, and cured meat on the nose. The palate layers flavors of blackberry, tempered by supple leather and warm spice, supported by a hint of freshly tilled earth that evolves to a supple mid-palate with great depth and a fantastic finish.
