Wine Review: Medlock Ames has been making impressive wines for as long as I can remember. If you have not discovered them yet, I highly recommend you seek them out. I recently had the chance to try this Cab at the “Luxe Tasting” at this year’s Wine Bloggers Conference. This impressive wine is very dark ruby colored. It opens with an attractive light black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, and juicy with pomegranate and black cherry flavors. There is a touch of spice and dried cranberry as well. It’s pleasantly complex. The finish is quite dry and its tannins linger for a little while. Pair this wine with a NY strip steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A dark fruit-laden wine with black cherry and cassis aromas, licorice, mocha and that wonderful spice quality we find in our vineyards. There is a rich, intense dark fruit core to this wine and a comforting unctuous texture that is highly satisfying. Bright acidity and ripe, supple tannins complete this wine.
