Sitting dense and visually pretty in the glass, fresh aromas of plum, prune, bay, dried flowers, and aromatic hints of clove and cardamom sit above a muscular core of cedar, leather, and earth. A sweet and supple entry upon first sip depends to a rich, full palate of quality tannins, and dense and concentrated fruit. The wine finishes with cocoa and espresso notes, biscuit and dark chocolate.

This is sophisticated stuff that lives up to Oakville's reputation. It tastes rich and alluring from the first whiff of black currant and espresso to the ultrasmooth mouthfeel and elegant finish. Think extra-fine tannins, opulent currant, dark chocolate and black cherry flavors. Enjoy it now or save through 2023 to encourage even more bouquet.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville, which spent more time in French oak, and is more expensive, has an inkier ruby/purple color, slightly more fruitcake, spice box, juicy blackcurrant fruit, a medium to full body, excellent purity, subtle new oak and an attractive lushness and velvety character. It should drink well for at least 10 to 15 years.
