Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Very deep ruby colour, almost pitch black. The intensity carries over to the palate, where aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, woodsmoke, smoked meat, mocha/dark chocolate and black licorice are all apparent. Dry, well-structured with lots of fruit, oak, refined tannins and well-handled acidity. Full-bodied with a very long, complex finish. Give this 3-5+ years in a cellar, or enjoy it tonight. My note: Terrific value with rich texture and dark fruit flavors. Notes of espresso, dried figs and anise. Great for long conversations into the wee hours of the night (morning).

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: roast beef from a slow cookerand root vegetables.
