(MAGNUM) This Cabernet Sauvignon from the Tietjen Vineyard in Rutherford offers fantastic aromas of rich, ripe, red berry fruit with undertones of sweet vanillin oak and hints of caramel. On the palate, the wine is massive, with a wonderful core of fruit on the full mid-palate. The balance of the wine from front to back is impeccable. The finish is long and carries the fruit beautifully.
This wine has attractive aromas of dark, ripe blackberry and raspberry with undertones of cola and cinnamon. On the palate, the wine introduces itself with confidence followed by a round, full body in the mid-palate. For a Pinot Noir bursting with vim and vigor, it is nicely framed by its elegant acidity. This robust expression of Pinot Noir is true to its varietal. The wine displays deep, dark ripe berry flavors on the palate through to a long and lingering finish. Drink now through 2025.
