Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Grgich was well received by the Panel. It opens with a black raspberry and blueberry bouquet with hints of mild oak and leather. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and black cherry blend with notes of nicely integrated minerality. We also detected hints of blueberry, coffee, and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins linger and last for quite a while. The Panel suggested pairing this very nice Cab with a ribeye steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The wine’s complex flavors of black currants, clove and mocha are topped o by licorice. Its full-bodied, rich mouthfeel carries these flavors for a long, lingering finish that loves seared steak, Gorgonzola gnocchi, beef bourguignon and ratatouille.
