Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black cherry and toasted oak bouquet with a hint of coconut. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is black plum and black currant blend with notes of red bell pepper and nutmeg. I also detected a hint of fig, black coffee and blueberry towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins drift away nicely. This wine smooths out with some aeration. I would pair it with a grilled marinated flank steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: On the Rim: Deep, dark cherry with touches of magenta and Ferrari red
On the Nose: Beautiful spice like thyme, rosemary, cedar, peaches and plums with bubble bath, chocolate, black truffle lingering on pine needle and dark honey
On the Palate: Round dense entrance evolving on a velvety fruity palate lingering on freshness of tannins with touches of Mirabelle plum, red apple pie, pears and mocha.
