Winemaker Tasting Notes: The 2013 Aftermath Cabernet Sauvignon offers savory aromas of herbs de Provence and thyme intermingled with fresh dark fruits of blackberry and cassis. The wine is ripe and open, with hints of oak and cedar carrying through to layers of dark fruit and a touch of black olive on the rich, layered palate. Medium to full in body, with supple tannins, it deftly balances fruit and structure to express the property’s rocky hillside terroir.
