Dumas Station Wines

This concentrated and powerful Cabernet beckons you in with the flavors and aromas of dried blackberries, mixed brambly fruits, raspberry, red currant, cassis, red plum skins, blueberry syrup, strawberry preserves, fresh nuts, cedar, oak, straw, cigar box, hints of leather, dusty spices, tea and tar. On the palate the wine is very dense, concentrated and powerful: full-bodied, well-balanced, and with fine well-integrated tannins and a very long finish. Mouth-filling fruit flavors of red currant, cassis, blackberry, blueberry, dried raspberry, strawberry preserves and bing cherry blend with savory flavors of anise, clove, dried spice, and olive brine; plus hints of tea and tobacco, bay leaf and roasted nuts, which extend on the very long finish. A "deeply serious" Cabernet!
