Ken's Wine Rating: Unbelievable/Fantastic (98-100)

Wine Review: The bouquet of this wine is classic cabernet. It was so inviting, I could spend days just smelling it. On the palate, the wine is exceptionally well balanced. Initially the wine starts out with nice gentle flavors on the palate, and then it explodes into the finish which is exceptionally long and tasty. I can not say enough about this unbelievable wine other than it is worth every penny of its expensive price tag. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The primary aromas are of black currants, blackberries, brown spices and dark-roasted coffee beans. In the mouth, the wine is lush and expansive, rich in berry fruit with a firm "grip" that makes the wine’s texture an important part of its character. The finish is long and classic–ripe fruit dominates.
