This is a well-made, nicely priced wine that overdelivers on its price point, providing earthy truffle, pencil shavings and cedar characteristics. Classically styled, balanced and elegant, it is savory, firm in tannin and nuanced in oak, with lasting notes of currant and cassis.
Solidly built, featuring a core of plum and blackberry notes, threaded with mesquite, mineral and savory hints. The finish shows a twinge of the rustic tannins that mark many 2017s, but ample fruit keeps them well-absorbed.
Deep ruby in color with a purple hue, the Unfiltered Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits red berry notes—such as currant and cherry—followed by Mediterranean aromatic herbs, hints of tobacco leaf, and cedar on the nose. The palate boasts pomegranate notes, and finishes with graphite-like, minerally tannins.
