Almost opaque, this wine’s appearance is reminiscent of black beetle shell, save its small mulberry rim. The delightfully rustic and steely palate—despite the wine’s medium body and copious juiciness—is packed with cassis, black plum skin and loganberry. From these flavors to the firm and tight-grained taninns and invigorating acidity, this is classic Cabernet Sauvignon. Ready to drink and meant to enjoy young given the moderate finish, this is a fun sipper. Drink now–2018.
