The ‘V.R. Special’ Cabernet Sauvignon has a gorgeous nose with rose petal, brandy soaked cherry, roasted figs and mocha that builds in the glass. The mouthfeel is lovely here as the silky texture coats the mid-palate. Creme de cassis, Turkish coffee, black currant and black cherry cordial flavors show good viscosity. While this is a touch hot, the balance and range is there.
