Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Puissants arômes fruités de mures, de prunes et de fraises avec une touche de cassis, de vanille et de chene rôti.

A deep dark ruby red in colour, this wine has great concentration and
personality. The nose is lush with blackcurrants, pencil lead, cherries and
a soft hint of cedar. This Cabernet Sauvignon is vibrant and penetrating, with
fine-grained tannins that are firm yet silky in texture, leading to balance and finesse in the finish.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
