Red - Vintage: 2018 - Size: 750 ml.
Mother of Exiles offers a profound nose filled with red currant, tar, blackberry, and an exotic intermingling of chipotle, cumin seed and cardamom. The palate has generous flavors of dark chocolate, Bing cherry, anise and a hint of menthol that brings a level of freshness as it heads towards a thrilling finish. The midpalate is luxurious, with a silky entry and subtle, yet grippy tannins on the long, drawn-out finish.
The Cabernet Sauvignon-based 2018 Mother Of Exiles is also blended with 22% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. It has an inky purple-black color and luscious cassis and warm blue fruits with touches of cedar, sweet spice, graphite and cigars. The palate is full-boded and firm with flamboyant, spice-laced black fruits and just enough uplift on the mineral-driven finish. It will benefit from another 3-5 years in bottle and will age well over the next 15+ years.
