Deep ruby-purple, it offers cassis, vanilla bean and sweet spices on the nose with cedar, coffee grounds and blue fruit sparks. Medium to full-bodied, it offers great intensity and a firm, chewy frame, with just enough freshness and an oak-laced finish. This is approachable now but is a bit more powerful than the Vintner's Reserve in terms of both tannin and oak. This is for you if you gravitate toward a beefier style of Cabernet."
