This has a deep, dark nose with spice box and sweet vanilla. The palate is brighter, with red fruit and blackberries on the attack. Black currant and red currant show on the mid-palate. It has firm tannins and good.  This is a very feminine Cabernet, with high-toned red fruits offering food-pairing versatility. Drink with rabbit. Highly Recommended (92-94). DH
