Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Dry Creek opens with a plum and mild raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum and mulberry blend with notes of minerality and faint oak. I also detected a hint of cinnamon and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins show very nice length. This Cab is food friendly and would pair well with barbecue steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This impeccable wine displays wonderful aromatics of cherry, black currant and blackberry notes. Additional airing reveals dried floral, thyme and hints of cassis and dark chocolate. The palate is full-bodied and fleshy with excellent tannin and structure. The wine is silky and lush with superb balance. The finish lingers on showing great texture and charm.
