The Captain’s Cabernet is for Apes who believe life gives us choices and opportunities even if we’re bored to death.
The wine is a vibrant purple, with multiple layers of legs: the initial short fat slow ones segue to long narrow silky lines over a few minutes. We love the aromas of sweet cedar, notes of cola, blueberry, and French herbs. A wisp or two of chocolate and dark cocoa waft above the glass for ages.
The taste of blue fruits cocoa and cola notes glide to a lip smacking elegance. While the oak and terroir of Dry Creek Valley are delicately featured within the palate of fruits, acids, and polyphenols. Drink now and be bored.
Purple, with alluring aromas of blue fruits, cocoa, and sweet cedar. Perfectly balanced and quaffable. Most similar to the 2012. Drinking beautfully in the 750ml (tasted December 2021) which means this large format can go at least another 4 to 7 years.
