This is a powerful expression of Cabernet Sauvignon and I consistently have to remind myself that it didn’t see oak. Only concrete tank and the grapes were dried for 6 weeks. There is an intense nose of ripe cassis, cardamom, damson plum, and a hint of tar and leather. The nose is lifted, suggesting higher alcohol. The palate is concentrated and drying, with a pleasing acidity and a long ripe finish. The fruit shines through on the palate. I suggest decanting this wine, and maybe even aging it for some time before braving its intensity. This will develop slowly. If you must, decant for a few hours, use large glassware, don’t serve it too cold as the tannins will take over.
