2002 ALPHA DOMUS ‘The Aviator’ surprisingly restrained for New World Cab

Nice red and black fruit aromas on the initial nose followed by green capsicum and vanilla.  Nose is younger than the appearance at this stage- medium ruby with garnet to brick tinge on edges.  Soft well integrated tannins support the ripe gentle fruit flavors- one could say surprisingly restrained fruit characteristics for a New World Cab Blend.  After being open for several hours, the green vegetable, cherry and vanilla still was there but licorice started to emerge. 92/100
