Wine Review: This winery is a new one for us and its first entry made a very good impression on the Tasting Panel. This wine is very dark ruby in color and opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with hints of dark chocolate covered cherry and saddle leather. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a black cherry and Baker’s chocolate blend with notes of heavy oak and black olive. The finish is dry and its chunky tannins are sticky and around for a while. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with a roast beef with Yorkshire pudding or lamb stew. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Dark purple to the rim, captivating scents of dark cherry and cassis combine with dark chocolate notes and a potpourri of baking spices. A full-bodied explosion stretches across the mid palate seemingly flowing forever. Sweet and polished tannins, pure ripe Cabernet Sauvignon fruit and Rutherford soil accents shine brightly in this wine. The concentrated and pure finish is detailed perfectly by fresh natural acidity allowing this wine to stretch for miles. Cellar this big boy for 3-5 years and you will be rewarded with an even more polished and articulated beauty.
