(15.2% alcohol) Saturated ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, licorice, loam and toasty oak, along with torrefaction notes of bacon, coffee and mocha. Sweet, lush and outsized; a no-holds-barred cabernet with a strong element of chocolatey torrefaction. Has the sheer mid-palate density of material to support its huge, toothfurring tannins. A big boy! Mark Herold was responsible for making these wines through the 2007 vintage, with Celia Masyczek taking over in 2008. Masyczek told me she will seek to make a more refined style.
