92 POINTS - "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is scented of baked berries, mulberries and kirsch with hints of espresso, black soil and tree bark. Full, rich and spicy in the mouth with slightly hard, chewy tannins, it finishes long and earthy." Robert Parker
Gorgeous black fruit, gravel, violets, black cherry, anise, juicy palate with nice stucture and velvety tannins along with chocolate flavors. Finishes with very elegant bittersweet tannins.
