Natalie's Score: 93/100

The Platonic ideal of cassis fleshed out by blackberry and dark spices and loads of toasty oak on this nose of this robust red wine. Full-bodied, smooth and balanced. Lots of layers and complexity yet also hedonistically rich and easy to drink. Try it with a juicy steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pepper steak, beef empanadas, chicken cacciatore, venison burgers, hard cheese.

From the back label: One must have the courage to stand up for your beliefs and not conform to the masses. The fruit for this wine was air dried for up to 8 weeks before crushing. this is the "Amarone" style of winemaking (Appassimento) with grapes picked at 12.5% potential alcohol and dried slowly to achieve 15% alcohol in the finished wine. The 2009 vintages was matured in 100% new oak barrels of which 90% was French. - Community Wine Reviews
