2013 ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 3L
Large Format - Jeroboam - 3L
This powerful, complex wine displays heady aromatics of black plum, black currant, frankincense, and sage enveloped by an inky purple color. is is followed by Oregon blackberry, cardamom, dark roast espresso bean, and cherry pipe tobacco with hints of vanilla, cinnamon toast, and saddle leather. Fine grained tannins provide structure and support for rich flavors of black cherry, raspberry, and mulberries.
A second layer offers fig, black olive, sandalwood, and dark chocolate accompanied by a very long finish. The velvety texture relinquishes subtle smoky notes of chocolate covered cherries and dried herbs.
