Cab is King they say and a cool climate wine region carries that crown with flair. Assertively Cabernet Sauvignon with that quintessential aromas of dried herbs, salty liquorice, robust dark fruit and astute tannins. The broody fruit is elevated by a youthful acidity that adds to its power with sour cherry and a silky texture that trails behind Expressive fruit anchors the wine in the New World but the restrain and smart use of oak adds that elegant and sophisticated old world charm. Great concentration and palate weight is indicative of the attention to detail from start to finish, a wine made to go the distance.

Play with pickles to complement the richness or fresh herbs to add freshness.
