The 2013 Kashmir is an aromatic powerhouse! Effusive notes of pure dark fruit—freshly sliced black plums, fully ripened blueberries, mountain blackberries and juicy black currants leap from the glass. An ocean of secondary aromas quickly follow; quartz, wildflowers, graphite, cassis and exotic teas. Tertiary hints of suede, ink and bramble are the final touches of this aromatic landscape. The palate is seamless and gives no indication of the intensity of flavors that greet you. Unctuous, rich, ripe and yet at the same time elegant and ethereal. The tannins are substantial and well-integrated supporting this powerful Cabernet. The warm, full finish goes on and on. Cellar and enjoy over the next 20+ years.
