Wine Review: I have enjoyed this wine over the last few nights. It has spicy & cherry aromas and flavors. The wine is medium bodied. The wine has a fairly long dry finish with a lasting flavor. This is another wine to consider with those BBQ steak tips on the grill. Enjoy!

Winemaker Notes: The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 4% Syrah and 2% Malbec. The Cabernet Sauvignon is the backbone of the blend, providing structure and body, while the Merlot adds flavor and depth. The small amount of Syrah increases the overall softness while the Malbec contributes a nice touch of earthiness. This wine is integrated, complex and well-structured, yet soft and appealing throughout. The wine is pleasantly aromatic with the essence of rose petal, ripe berry and a light earthiness. Flavors of dark fruit, cassis and mint are followed by hints of mocha, chocolate and spice.

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