"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve was aged 20 months in 50% new French oak. Deep ruby-purple in the glass, it has a spicy nose with aromas of cinnamon stick, baked marionberries, cedar, crème de cassis and pure baked blackberries with nuances of lilacs, pink peppercorn and charcuterie plus a classy framing of new oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied and slow to unfurl, eventually spreading its wings to explosive, savory-laced black fruits. Texturally, it's powerful but with finely dispersed, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and wonderfully layered."
