Tasting Notes:
The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon exudes aromas of red and black currant, raspberry, boysenberry, and toasted almonds. The palate offers a soft and supple entry, revealing flavors of crumbled blueberry pie, olallieberry, and a hint of graham cracker. The finish is rich and textured, with soft, integrated tannins that create a long, layered finish.
