Wine Review: This is a throwback to what Sonoma Cabs used to be like not that long ago. On the nose, this wine has notes of blackcurrant, eucalyptus, dried tobacco, and dark chocolate. On the palate, flavors of dark chocolate (around 75%) are mixed with maduro tobacco, mulberry, and black tea. There is a ton of grip to this wine that would indicate it could have been opened an hour or so earlier. The finish is long and drifts away to notes of cassis jam. I would pair this with a grilled steak that has a semi-sweet glaze on it. - Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: The wine has an aroma of rich blackcurrant, subtle spice, tomato leaf and a touch of eucalyptus. French oak maturation is also evident with subtle aromas of cedar and dark chocolate. Great intensity. It has distinctive blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavors. Subtle oak characters of cedar cigar box and spice are also evident. The tannins are fine and elegant – a hallmark of the varietal. The palate is well balanced, complex, and fulfilling and lingers on the finish.
