Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Acumen opens with a black currant and black cherry bouquet with hints of cedar, black plum, and violets. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth, lush, fresh, and powerful. The flavor profile is black plum and graphite blend with notes of black tea and loam. We also detected hints of cedar, cocoa, strawberry, and faint clove. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins build-up and for quite some time. This wine needs some time. If you can’t wait, decant it for a while as it benefits from the aeration. The Tasting Panel would then pair this Cab with a Kansas City strip steak or a grilled porterhouse steak. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Combining the power of Edcora Vineyard with the grace of Attelas, this alluring wine offers sweet and spicy aromas of cassis, black currant, flashy oak spice, cedar, roasted coffee, and anise. On the rich, month-coating palate, fine-grained tannins frame the lush dark berry flavors, with hints of clove, cinnamon and vanilla bean emerging on the long, complex finish.
