Spicy black currant and black cherry coupled with toasty oak, dried herbs, cinnamon and clove, help to describe the nose of the 2008 Sycamore Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has great depth of black fruits with a strong expression of sweet black cherry. There is a complexity in the nose that hints of tobacco and a briary thicket. This full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon has well integrated tannin which yields a very pleasant, fruitful finish.
