This dark red colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a fragrant and attractive blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. This wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black cherry with notes of cedar and gentle plum. I also detected a hint of boysenberry. The finish is dry and its well-controlled moderate tannins fade away nicely. This Cab is very well made and would pair well with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken
