Aromas of blackberry, dark plums, brambly jelly, strawberries, freshly picked violets, lilacs, and wild herbs waft from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and fresh, with lush dark fruit, cacao, and dried florals this partners with a soft and velvety texture along with silky tannins. This is certainly a more delicate and lighter style of Cabernet, perhaps old world in structure that leads to an elegant and soft finish. This can easily compare to a Margaux 4th growth wine at a 1/3 of the price!
