This wine has been amazing to track since it comes from the warmer side of Oakville yet tastes like it comes from a cooler site. This shows very dark fruits - copious black cherries, black berries along with a touch of peppermint. On the palate this wine pulls you in with an absolutely seamless palate and tremendous length. A great addition to the Cabernet program that shows how different the East and West hills of Oakville can be from each other. Since this is the first vintage from Tierra Roja, there is no back vintage to gauge the aging curve but with its impeccable balance it should hang in there with the best of the vintage.
