Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it`s presented. The aromas of chocolate-covered cherry, blackberry, dried herbs, vanilla and spice are like the price was. The flavors are sweet, yet work well in terms of impression and appeal. Sweet red fruit, baking spices and chocolate take center stage. Dark, toasty black-fruit flavors linger on the finish. Coming from a solid, almost-retired vintage, this offers aromas of gravel, earth, spirit and bell pepper. In the mouth there are flavors of black cherry, blackberry and coffee, but it`s a little edgy and raw. Herbal notes drive the palate, which has tart acids, and ultimately sharpness along with enough green and white fruit to satisfy. Good Cabernet Sauvignon, but too forward and heavy. The cherry and cassis flavors are coated with as much or more bitter extract as there is some firm tannin.
