Wine Review: This dark purple wine opens with a black current like bouquet with hints of mint and anise. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is very smooth, has absolutely no hard edges, and displays mild dusty blackberry like flavors with some dark chocolate components as well. The finish is dry, has very refined tannins, and lingers for a while. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2003 vintage resulted in wines that have stunning aromas, flavors and texture. Violets, black-cherry and blackberry coat the palate, layering complex notes of Vahlrhona chocolate, wood-smoke and Asian spice. This wine will mature nicely over the next 7 to 8 years and continue to age gracefully for at least another 10-20 years.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Cabernet Sauvignon.
