A powerful and complex Californian Cab.
Another jewel from Anders Lane; from Central Coast this time. This Cabernet is extremely pleasant and will seduce even the most stubborn critics of the California style, even despite a rather difficult 2011 vintage. First off, this wine is of a beautiful ruby red color, exposing light garnet color on the edges; an unctuous texture in the glass announces a bold wine. The nose is explosive and complex. First off, aromas of wild berries, we then discover plum, onion compote, smoke, rosemary/eucalyptus, red bell pepper and tangy spices. On the palate, the wine remains true to itself, with a generous, juicy and concentrated fruit, with powerful yet elegant tannins and with the expression of a full bodied wine. The finish is persistent, refined and harmonious.
