2011 V Madrone Horseshoe Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2011 Horseshoe Vineyard Cabernet is an exceptional wine with a combination of powerful fruit and subtle notes of elegance. It has a beautiful dark ruby/purple color which is opaque and densely hued. Initial aromas of cassis, blackberry malt, holiday spice, crushed wet stones, soy and whole tobacco leaf, rich toasted oak and vanilla bean. On the palate, the dark fruit is center stage, with elements of oak, spice and forest floor in the background.
