This is St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon in its pure form. It is inky purple in color, dark, powerful, and concentrated. Rich, ripe black and purple fruits are immediately evident on the nose, supported by earth, licorice, and tobacco spice. The palate is met by flavors of blackberries, cassis, and a hint of toast. The tannins are beautifully integrated, creating a balanced, silky, elegant wine.
