Fly Rod Cellars is an occasional project of Assistant Winemaker Troy Mandeville and Cellarmaster John Richardson. Each vintage features a different red and rose' wines.
This Cabernet features a deep ruby color and rich, smoky aromas of blackberries, cherries, plums, black roses, tobacco, cedar, a hint of mint, and black incense. The flavors are true to variety and direct, with notes of licorice, bittersweet chocolate, cola, roasted coffee beans and earth. The back picks up macerated berries, roasted nuts and graphite, followed by a chewy, ripe tannin finish.
