WineDiva's Review

Expressive, chocolaty, oak.
I haven't tasted this red blend since the 2013 vintage and this 2019 vintage is 48% Cabernet Sauvignon and 52% Syrah that was aged in oak for 18 months. It delivers vanilla and sweet oak aromas along with licorice and cedar, crushed purple flowers, black cherry and brambleberry aromas. The palate echoes the nose with purple fruit and peppery spices, black chocolate and expresso flavours, but the oak really weighs down the finish.
Pair: Pepper crusted rib-eye steak, hearty mushroom ravioli with Parmesan and herbs or seasonal game meats.
