Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend is very good and was well received by our mini-tasting group. It opens with a mild black currant and oak bouquet with a hint of black tea. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with hints of black raspberry and boysenberry jam. The finish is dry and its mild tannins and fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. I would pair this very good wine braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Enticing aromas of ripe berries mingle with a hint of fine herbs and a mineral essence. A concentrated, velvety entry is infused with layers of black raspberry, dark cherry, currant, and a hint of blueberry. Dark chocolate, creamy coffee, and just a trace of eucalyptus appear mid-palate as the flavors expand and linger. Supple tannins and gentle oak notes are found among the flavors, staying in the background yet lending structure and weight to the wine. Though delicious now, this blend will continue to integrate and evolve with additional bottle aging. If enjoyed before 2017, please decant at least 30 minutes before serving.
