Winery Notes:

This wine displays a magnificent, compelling and inviting nose that is quintessential  of Cabernet Sauvignon. Unrestrained wild cherry, currant and mulberry fragrances arise with pronounced notes of cocoa, coriander, and wintergreen. Sublayers of dried herbs, cedar, tobacco leaf and slate provide substantive foundation to the aromatic profile. On the palate a veritable explosion of fresh, ripe, dark berry fruits. Tangy blackberry, juicy black cherry, pomegranate and cranberry are mingled with lovely blueberry and raspberry accents, underscored with kirsch and rhubarb. Integrated nicely with toasty oak, graphite and forest floor. Full bodied and a very silky texture, this wine glides into a long, generous finish resonating with ripe fruit and exotic spice allowing 

an amazing aging capabilities.

Wine AdvocateAt this early stage, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve seems to be even more promising than the 2016, opening in the glass with aromas of dark berries and damson, without any trace of its time in new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, concentrated and intense. Rich and layered, there's a lot of substance here, but it's replete with sappy energy. This could easily turn out to be the best Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve to date.
