Wine Review: This medium purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Arrowood opens with a black cherry and mild craisin bouquet with hints of cola and violets. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth and lush. The flavor profile is a juicy black currant and cherry-cola blend with notes of oak and mocha. There is a hint of cranberry and oregano at the very end. The finish is dry and its mild tannins and flavors drift away nicely. This Cab is a very good mid-week offering. It would pair well with grilled steak tips or with your favorite juicy burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2018 vintage of the Sonoma Estates offers generous layered aromas of bright cherry and black forest fruit. Ripe fruit character carries through on the palate along with undertones of caramel and cedar. Bright and juicy with a plush and velvety texture, it is readily enjoyable on its own and versatile enough to be paired with anything from casual pub fare to a classic ribeye.
