Three clones of Cabernet are planted on the Italics estate and this wine clearly delineates all three. Blackberry notes from Clone 15. Floral notes from Clone 337. And from Clone 7, structure and backbone. Overall, the wine is very dense, with concentrated spice, fruit and earth. The oak is perfectly integrated, drawing out the wine's blackberry compote and dark chocolate truffle flavors. While it drinks well now the wine will evolve over time to reveal sweet earth and cognac flavors.
