The nose opens up to pomegranate, violets, cigar, orange peel and black tea. Wild blueberries, blackberries and raspberry liqueur, cigar box, orange chocolate and textured tannins are all kept in balance by nuanced acidity.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Independent):
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Northern Gale is deep garnet-purple in color. Vibrant notes of black and red cherries give way to nuances of spice cake, potpourri, and tobacco leaf. The full-bodied palate is bright, refreshing, and breezy, with fine-grained tannins and an energetic finish. — 94pts
