The exquisite layers of this wine result in precision and grace. Dense with color and body, blackberries, dark cherries, and pi¬quant cassis rise to a crescendo of flavor. The textured structure of the blend is evident at the mid-palate as silken tannins become superbly discernible. Leather, apple wood, pomegranate, fig, and tar notes combine with a bustling bazaar of exotic spices to charm the senses.
A lively core of vibrant acidity and supple tannins frame undulating contours of plums, figs, raspberries, and cherries. Hints of smoky pepper, dark chocolate, and dusty sage appear on the appealing finish that lingers with freshness and persistence. The Paso Robles appellation continues to produce expressive and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon fruit with signature quality and finesse.
Elegant body perfumed with orange blossoms and apple aromas. Ample flavors of crisp pears, chewy apricots, and toasted walnuts are accented with fine hits of nutmeg, almonds, and peach-pie crust. There’s a charming buttery quality, with a slender puff of marshmallow, on the sumptuous and creamy finish.
Blackberries and raspberries front the luscious profile. Black tea and rose petals provide the next accented layers. There’s also a delightful strawberry pinch at the mid-palate. Soft bounces of acidity and smooth tannins result in an exquisite and lasting finish.
Cherries, black currants, and violets on the nose are precursors for the big ripe flavors of raspberries and pomegranate that follow. Supple tannins cling just a bit, but not too much to claw. The balance of alcohol and acid, along with its fruit-forwardness make this wine very approachable.
Lavish and intense, this wine has a delightful nose of violets, acacia, and tobacco. Sinewy tannins support woven layers of raspberries, cherries, and roasted vanilla. Black currants blend with plum notes resulting in brilliant piquant tinges at the back-palate. Graced with cedar, graphite, and licorice accents, the poised finish glides persistently.
Ripe blackberries, crisp plums, and luscious pomegranate juice rush together to the front of the profile. Tinges of cinnamon, smoky crushed black pepper, and spicy hoisin sauce make for a mouth watering mid-palate sensation as the glossy tannins and bouncy acidity become perceptible.
