This wine walks right up the line between fruity and savory, yet jumps right over to the savory side delivering plenty of fruit and nervous energy in the mouth.
Black licorice and cassis are often hallmark attributes of Kuleto Estate cabernet, and this wine has them both in spades. In the mouth, the wine arcs gracefully over the mid-palate and melts over the sides.
Fresh blackberry syrup, fresh ground black pepper (floral and spicy), and fresh thyme dominate the aroma. The mouth is densely flavored, plush, and succulent.
Blueberry and white peach aromas swirl yin-yan-like inside layers of vanilla and sweet butter. Fresh fruit compote comes to mind.
Driven by flavor and acidity rather than by tannin and heat from alcohol. More reminiscent of Old World than of New.
Evocative aromas of dark fruits, tar and caramel. Juicy, very focused in the front and mid-palate. Deep, bright red.
