As we have come to expect of Cabernets from this AVA, this wine possesses a balanced backbone of oak and good acid, while also having the restraint and complexity one might expect from a higher-end wine. You will likely notice concentrated and intense notes of black currant, cigar box, and cherry cola, but it won't be overpowering. For those who are looking to explore the world of truly high end wines, this is a terrific place to start.
