Cocoa dusted blackberry aromas, but in the brightest sense. Notes of violets and a hint of laurel and cassis-dropped thyme leaves. The texture is full and borders on creamy, but the bright acidity and leafiness keep the wine very fresh. The herbal notes turn minty on the finish and the tannins are moderately firm but long. Loads of vitaility to this wine and an example of Cabernet Sauvignon that will please many palates.
