Rich notes of plum, mulberry, black cherry, bay leaf, and rich Baker's chocolate. This wine is large-scaled, silky and seamless on the palate, showcasing dark red fruits, chocolate dustings, and vanilla. Though young now, with plenty of structure it should fill out nicely on the palate and drink well over the next fifteen plus years.

"A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain offers a rocking nose of pure black fruits as well as loads of graphite, liquid flowers, and liquid rock. Deep, inky, rich, and full-bodied, with beautiful depth of fruit, as well as plenty of tannins, it shines for its purity, balance, and length, but is going to benefit from short-term cellaring"
"Bright Ruby Red (80% new French Oak). Warm alluring scents of blackberry, blueberry, cassis, violet, licorice and loam. Concentrated, fine grained and suave, offering lovely depth and sweetness to its plush dark berry, violet, mocha and soil flavors. Already quite inviting as there are no rough edges here but the wine’s concentration, tannic structure, and length suggest that patience will be rewarded. Tasting Date October 2018."
