Though not that expressive now, this red is dense and full of blackberry, black cherry, plum, earth and cedar flavors. Fine-grained tannins are compact and balanced, while the finish lingers nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Best from 2023 through 2036. 6,000 cases made, 1,700 cases imported.
