"Select Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards from Napa Valley form the brass, strings, and woodwinds of Symphonia. On the nose, leather and black cherry dig deep as red-fruited notes exude juiciness on the palate, where they harmonize with a chorus of chalky tannins. Black tea, slate, cedar, and dark chocolate interplay with mouthwatering plum underscored by a hum of black pepper. It finishes boldly and sweetly in perfect pitch."

"Blackberries, blackcurrants, Chinese spices, eucalyptus and some citrus undertones. This shows good form and tension despite the rich fruit. Drink in 2022."
