Intense dark chocolate-covered cherry and roasted coffee glide in on a sleek mouthfeel with seductive notes of blackberry and licorice. In its youth, this broad-shouldered, yet already balanced red, is cloaked in dark violets that bloom as it opens up.
Plums, blueberries, kirsch, dried flowers and chocolate orange on the nose. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, fresh acidity and a zesty, fruity character. Some walnut notes to close. Drink from 2023.
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Romeo is blended of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it leaps from the glass with notes of kirsch, black cherry compote and warm cassis, plus wafts of lavender, forest floor and cloves. The medium to full-bodied palate is refreshing, featuring fine-grained tannins with elegantly styled fruit and a lively finish. Rating: 92+
