Tasting Notes

Concentrated, rich and intense, the 5-Star General offers a full-force Cabernet experience. The silken core reveals layers of flavors wrapped in plush tannins. A tight yet juicy mix of cedar, wild berry and black currant fuse with hints of anise, eucalyptus and a mineral essence to linger into the finish. Best to give this General some breathing room before serving, or a few more years in the cellar.
