Tasting note: The wine still displays a good color, rich blackcurrant color with suggestions of an amber edge. Spicy, dusty, blackcurrant nose with the aromas of the Cabernet varietal showing through strongly. It develops a rich berry nose as it evolves, and develops in the glass with further sweet berry, pine and toast notes along with a hint of game. This is a medium-bodied wine with a firm structure that will ensure that it will continue to age gracefully. On the palate it displays spicy,oaky,herbal and cassis flavors. Slightly peppery drying finish, with suggestions of toast and vanilla. Tasted7/93
