Wine Review: This opaque and midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley opens with a stewed plum and black currant bouquet with hints of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. It is also round and savory. The flavor profile is a spiced plum and clove blend with notes of black currant, oak and stony minerality. I also detected some hints of blackberry in the mix. The finish is dry, and its dusty tannins linger and last for a very long time. This Cab would pair well with a ribeye steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark and inviting in the glass, winemaker Russell Bevan has tamed the beast with this mouth filling Cabernet. A nose of blueberry, espresso, and black currants draws you into the glass, revealing a palate that showcases this wine’s hedonistic core. While dense and focused, this wine's refined tannins carry its background notes of leather and spice throughout an almost never-ending finish.
