The wines are deep and luscious with a dark ruby color and strong fruit aromas. The 2014 vintage is 100% cabernet sauvignon and wine exhibits cherry berry fruit complimented by vanilla and oak with long lasting tannins. This dark ruby colored wine is a mélange of dark berry, cherry and vanilla on the nose, The sweet entry yields to a lightly structured, elegant mouthfeel, with concentrated dark berry, mocha and oak characters. This youthful wine finishes extra long and can be drunk now or put down for 5 to 10 years more
