CS H 2017 Wine Advocate 95


Wine Advocate


The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Hirondelle Vineyard is made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 100% new French Taransaud, Sylvain and Darnajou barrels. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers hedonic blueberry pie, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis notes with hints of licorice, dried herbs and unsmoked cigars plus a touch of cedar chest. Full-bodied and firm, with lovely ripe, grainy tannins, it has well-balanced freshness and bags of layered blue and black fruit flavors, finishing spicy.
