Varietal
Cabernet Sauvignon

A Cab with over 4 years in the making, including 46 months in barrel, & with the lively, deep, vibrant red robe of royalty, at once classic, & yet as totally unique as Don Quixote wearing pleated saffron tights & crimson steampunk tailcoats while catching a thermal, soaring into the heavens upon the flanks of vivacious Rocinante, incisive lance in hand & a fine Cuban Cohiba firmly clutched in his teeth, a few gold-capped molars flashing in the sun . . . pure excellence! Ripe, dark cassis speckled with green olive, a warm cedar box lined with supple Alpacan leather from the Outer Hebrides, sweet humous layered with sun-dried cherries, Mexican chocolate, anise & aromatic licorice. A finish that’s very long, very long indeed: this XLB will cling to your tongue with a bright, juicy bite followed by an infusion of smoke-roasted moose thigh slathered over with boysenberry crackle & orange compôte from La Mancha dusted off with an assortment of roasted nuts.
