“Big and juicy, this bold red offers tar and a touch of reduction on the nose. The palate shows tobacco, black cherry, and polished, sizable tannins that add weight and density to the mid-palate before unfurling a soft, spicy finish of clove and black pepper.

“The nose is a creamy blue plum, tobacco, and creme de cassis with an undercurrent of earth. The palate is tobacco, plum and dark cherry with lavish currant and wild berry in the core, finishing with notes of camphor.”

Winemaker Notes - Phillip Corallo-Titus
“The 500 Chevaux is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: muscular, naturally more tannic and built to age, yet with a plush and polished mouthfeel and lingering finish. Concentrated and perfectly balanced, this opulent Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich aromas of blueberry, fruit compote and wild berry liqueur that evolve into notes of cola nut and vanilla that continue on the palate. Hints of espresso and dark chocolate, with soft notes of wood unfold in the background. The wine is opulent and large scale, with firm structure and radiant tannins.”
