Available for:
This enticing and deeply colored red wine shows a complex nose of baking spice, black olive and lead pencil integrated beautifully with aromas of ripe black fruits. In the mouth the wine is rich and elegant, showing subtle notes of herb and bright black berries. Integrated tannins enhance the texture and give proportion; the finish is complex, generous, and long. While this wine can be enjoyed now it will benefit greatly from additional cellaring and, with proper storage, should develop for ten years or more.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Artist Series checks in as 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, and 1% each of Petit Verdot and Merlot, aged in 58% new French oak. Rock star notes of pure cassis and spiced red plums are intermixed with lots of cedar pencil, leafy herbs, chocolate, and spring flower aromas on the nose. These all carry over to the palate, where the wine is full-bodied, concentrated, and structured, with ripe, polished yet building tannins that emerge on the finish. As with the other 2017s here, the cellar will be your friend, and it's going to reward 4-5 years of bottle age. It's going to have 25+ years of longevity.

Aromas of green herb, vanilla, dried cherry, chocolate, cocoa and flower lead to rich, layered dark fruit flavors with plentiful barrel accents. It's made in a rich, hedonistic style, drinking like a candy bar. It has enough stuffing to lay down for a decade or two in the cellar. Fruit and barrel play equal parts. Give the oak some time to integrate. Best after 2025.

Bright ruby-red. Slightly medicinal scents of cassis, blueberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and menthol. Concentrated, brooding and still a bit youthfully simple, with its black fruit flavors currently overshadowed by a medicinal menthol and licorice quality. This needs time to evolve and express itself. Tooth-coating tannins are substantial but reasonably well buffered and not dry, with an element of peppery herbs keeping the finish quite brisk. Not sweet right now but boasts plenty of underlying dark fruits to ensure a positive evolution in bottle.
