This vintage of Western Slopes Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the intense characters of a specific microregion on the western hillsides and mountains of Dry Creek Valley. Juicy aromas of black currant and cherry come forward initially. Additional airing reveals notes of black pepper, roasted almond and cedar. The palate is bold and luxurious with bright fruit flavors of bing cherry, black currant and dried cranberry. The finish lingers with notes of sweet tobacco, dried herbs and dried fruits. Smooth and supple tannins frame this silky and elegant expression of high elevation Cabernet Sauvignon.
