Wine Review: This ruby colored wine from Bianchi recently finished in 3rd place in our recent blind tasting of mid priced Cabs. It opens with an attractive cherry and menthol like bouquet with hints of toffee. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth, soft, and balanced with savory cherry vanilla flavors. The finish is dry and shows nicely managed tannins that linger for some time. This is a very food friendly Cab and would pair quite nicely with pheasant or veal marsala. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Our '05 Cab is a synergy of well-structured grapes from Central and Western Paso Robles vineyards; a wine of many layers with coffee-berry flavors and a fine backbone of tactile tannins and oak spice. Bianchi Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful accompaniment to seared flank steak, buttery Yukon Gold mashed potatoes, and al dente haricots verts.
