Wine Review: This opaque and deep purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina opens with a black currant with hints of oak, prune, and Baker's chocolate. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is extracted black currant and stony minerality blend with notes blackberry, oak, and purple jellybean. The finish is dry and it displays bold and dusty tannins. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cabernet Sauvignon with a fireplace this winter. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Deep garnet red in color, this wine expresses aromas of ripe red fruits and black pepper. After a while, notes of cherry are found, accompanied by spices and oak. In the mouth, it delivers rich and velvety tannins. Its structure is dense and with spicy touches of black pepper and cinnamon.

Winemaker Interview Series – Robert Foley

On January 4th, we had a chance to catch up with Robert "Bob" Foley, who is the winemaker at his winery Robert Foley Vineyards. We also had the pleasure of having Kelly Kehoe join us as well. On the evening of the tasting, a bad storm was hitting Howell Mountain. We made it through the last wine before the storm knocked out the internet on their end. We wrapped up by phone. Fortunately, we finished 99% of the interview beforehand. Check out what we learned about Bob, Kelly, and their wines in our latest blog post. Read This Blog Post
