Mullan Road Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
Our first single-variety Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine reveals sultry aromas of muddled red fruits, raspberry, and dried strawberry with hints of light baking spices. Swirling brings up notes of crème brûlée with black tea, mocha, and cocoa powder. The palate is round and polished, with black currants and plum purée accented by vanilla bean and balanced by fine tannins. Hints of dark chocolate and pressed berries linger on the finish.
Tasting Panel- This blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc sends up vivid soprano notes of lilac and blueberry with base scents of chocolate and balsamic. Floral tones persist on the palate with abundant violets. Cigar leaf comes in midway before the saturation of blue fruit takes over and washes through the oak-kissed finish.
Wine Enthusiast- Roasted coffee bean, tar, melted butter and dark chocolate aromas are up front. An assortment of fruit and barrel flavors follow. Lightly chewy tannins back it up. The freshness is compelling. Best after 2024.
