Expressive dark fruit, blackberries, liquorice, pencil lead, gentle oak, very primary. Medium to full bodied, subtle tannins, eucalyptus note, and then liquorice, bringing sun and ripeness. Maybe a bit too ripe, sweet in the palate for me.

Super smooth. Plenty of black berries, slight hint of mocha and loads of flavor

Nice Cabernet. Deep purple in color. Black cherry with notes of cassis and leather.

This wine has an interesting history. Please read the pro ratings. It was rather pricey and in my opinion - not great value for money. Yes, highly drinkable. Went well with faro, asparagus parm risotto and some filet tips. Everyone enjoyed. Somewhat fruit forward, somewhat juicy, deep red color - fine and everyone enjoyed it. However, you can definitely find something better at the price point that would satisfy and pair with food equally well if not better. Don’t mean to knock it - since I have 2 bottles remaining - but meh!
