Taste ProfileNotes: Intense ruby in color, this lovely Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromatics of ripe cherries and berries with subtle backnotes of violets on the nose. Flavors of saturated black cherries, plums and cassis are the introduction to this intense yet balanced wine, as notes of spice, roasted coffee and dark chocolate intermingle with supple tannins for a broad, lasting finish.
