WINE MAKERS COMMENTS: One is immediately struck by the stunning deep purple color and wonderfully varietal aromatic intensity. The integrated complexity of the nose makes it difficult to pick our individual components, but there are hints of mature dark cherries, pepper, and an alluring dusty-earthiness. On the palate the structure and weight are consistent with top Cabernet, with a balance and roundness indicative of the fruit from the ridge of the Mayacamus Range. The finish lingers nicely with added hints of allspice, vanilla, and juniper berry.
