The 73% Cabernet Sauvignon (followed by Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc) is named for Bach's masterpiece. Dark fruit and dry coffee tannins align with its fine acidity which brighten and livens the nose and palate. An underlying earthiness with plum and cassis balances it out. Still so youthful - she will age with grace.Wine Tasting NotesDeep garnet in color, with a very complex nose laden with dark fruit. Rich with the flavors of plum, dried cherry, clove, cardamom, and cassis with hints of peppercorn and cocoa. Smooth entry with ripe berries and cherry. The mouthfeel is full, yet seamless, showing well-knit tannins woven into a supple and full palate. On the mid-palate, notes of cassis and sage lead to a long finish of dark fruit, toasty vanilla notes, and savory hints of tobacco and black olive. Rich and inviting.73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec, and 2% Cabernet FrancAlcohol 14.5%
