2010 VELLUM Cabernet Sauvignon

VARIETAL COMPOSITION: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot

TASTING NOTES:

Wild aromas of vibrant cassis, understory, and sweet tarry tobacco bound up from the wine. There is a final heady note of raw cocoa that continues on to the palate. Here blacker forest fruits emerge and knit with flavours of tar, minerals, bramble and winter mulling spices. Fine tannin is layered and tightly woven onto a seamless and highly structured frame. The wine finally descends as a capacious wave, moving with traction and purpose to a long succulent finish. Age 20+ years. (40 barrels produced)
