Wine Review: This ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Banshee opens with a red currant and red plum bouquet with hints of red licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, and bright. The flavor profile, like the nose revolves around red fruit. It displays a stony minerality and red plum blend with notes of pomegranate and oolong tea. I also detected hints of cinnamon and cedar. The finish is dry, and its flavors and moderate dusty tannins stick around for quite some time. I would pair this Cab with Morimoto's hoisin chili sticky spareribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, purple-ruby in color with aromas of toffee, dried cranberry, and chocolate covered raspberries with hints of soft hazelnut and baking spices. A juicy entry on the mouth delivers plush, fine tannins with a velvety texture. This approachable, medium-bodied Cabernet has full, yet silky flavors of lush milk chocolate, strawberry, and raspberry crumble with graham cracker. A finale of round tannins leads to a dry, smooth finish.
