Wine EnthusiastTwo things mark this Cabernet: exceptionally ripe fruit and hard tannins. The flavors of blackberry, cherry and currant are buried under a blanket of dry astringency. The question is whether the fruit will outlive the tannins. Try holding it until 2017.

Wine SpectatorDried berry and dry savory herb compose the core. Tastes stripped and tannic at the expense of texture and ripe fruit. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made.
