This is a complex young red made in an approachable, drinkable style, but with plenty of links to its deep roots in profound Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Opening with a classic ripe aroma of berries, currants and hints of dried herbs and cedary oak, there wafts over the top an impression of graphite that hints at depth and richness to come. In the mouth the wine begins with a medium-bodied structure showing only a slight grip of ripe tannins, giving it a round, balanced feel that begs to be drunk straight away. The flavors of berries, dark cherries, currants and herbs are more effusive than the aroma, suggesting that the youthful aroma will expand with some bottle age which will be supported by the dash of astringency lurking in the long finish.
