Wine Review: This slightly opaque and ruby colored Cabernet opens with a black cherry and vanilla oak bouquet with a hint of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry and cola blend with notes of black raspberry, black cherry and nicely integrated oak. The finish is dry and its moderate sticky tannins show nice length. This Cab would pair well with Theresa's meatloaf or messy ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intriguingly aromatic, this wine opens with bold notes of black raspberry, ripe black cherry, tobacco and the smoky toast of new French oak. A rich array of flavor follows ranging from blackberries and Mexican chocolate to cherry reduction sauce and even a hint of Herbs de Provence. The ripe, full fruit flavors are held in check by its moderate acidity and hearty tannins resulting in a beautifully balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with a toasty wood finish. Pair this wonderful Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with herb crusted rack of lamb, wild mushroom ravioli or chicken mole enchiladas.
