The wine is aged 24 months in French Oak (60% new) and is a total production of 3000 cases.
On the nose I get aromas of big, ripe, red raspberry, blackberry, unsweetened coco, and hints of creamy vanilla and black pepper. The bouquet is really classic Oakville Cabernet with very nice purity.
On the palate the wine exudes flavors of chocolate black cherry, blackberry, black currant, oak, and spice. It has a massive tannin structure that grips down pretty firmly on the palate and finishes slightly chewy and gritty.
This wine is a mere baby right now, and with time in the cellar, I think it will improve immensely. It needs time for all the elements to gel and for the tannin to integrate and meld together with the fruit. The fruit is all there and will no doubt come singing forth in the future once the oak and extract mellows out. 91+ points
