Opaque dark ruby describes the color of this Rutherford wine. Black currant and Boysenberry notes dominate the aroma, with dark chocolate truffle, cocoa powder, Worchester sauce, crimini mushrooms and forest floor adding to the complexity. The oak adds the right amount of complexity with aromatic cedar, cinnamon and clove. The wine has great depth of black fruit flavor, with a strong expression of sweet black cherry. This full bodied cabernet sauvignon has resolved tannins yet firm structure, with good acidity. Lovely long finish.
