Wine Review: This opaque and midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa opens with a fragrant blackberry and black licorice bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant, oak and mineral blend. I also detected hints of Dr. Pepper and espresso. The finish is dry and very long and extended. This Cab will pair well with a New York Strip steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our flagship wine is full and rich and even across the palate. Black current and cherry aromas marry with a hint of cedar in this elegant and seamless Cabernet-based blend. The complexity of flavors is carried across the palate in a silky texture, resolving in a lingering and gentle finish. The Claret, Napa-style, is made of the best we have in the cellar.
