Wine Review: This Cabernet Sauvignon from Wente is dark ruby in color. It opens with alluring aromas of black raspberry, blackberry, milk chocolate and leather. On the palate, it is medium to full bodied, rich, elegant, lush and well balanced. The flavor profile is blackberry, cassis and cherry with hints of dark chocolate, oak and tobacco. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. We would pair this Cab with coq au vin or drink on its own. - Karen and Stu

Winemaker Notes: Deep, bold and concentrated with beautifully layered aromatics of rose pedals, raspberry and blackberry complemented by intense flavors of ripe plums, red and black fruit with a touch of spice and black tea. This full-bodied, supple wine has a long, lingering finish with robust tannins and elegantly balanced acidity.
