Dark quite young purple. Like it is only a year or two old. Lovely aromas of pure dark fruits. Vanilla-kissed deep dense new world flavors with plums, cherries, and chocolate covered blueberries. 30+ second finish. Totally delicious. I know I am on a string of all A ratings, and wanted to grade this lower but it is really tasty. I deduct only a slight bit as at this price, I expect a little more terrior. The great thing about this is Jill loves it and usually doesn’t like California Cabernet. She loves the balance, chocolate and depth.
Original retail, $45 but now more like $80. Grade: A-
