Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon based wine from Alpha Omega is very good. It opens with a black currant and gentle oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and velvety smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black currant with notes of gentle oak. We also detected hints of cinnamon, flinty minerality, black olive, and mocha. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins are nicely prolonged. The Panel suggested pairing this wine with a flat iron steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Color: Deep, dark, black oil with touches of mauve on the rim.
On the Nose: Beautiful nose of spices and flowers, such as thyme and lilacs with a touch of roses, dark chocolate cherries and gingerbread.
On the Palate: Fresh, fruity entrance evolving on granular integrated tannins lingering on juicy fruit such as black currant, plum and boysenberries.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Alpha Omega 2016 Proprietary Red.
