Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet based wine opens with a black cherry, green bell pepper, and black olive bouquet with some hints of moist pipe tobacco, petrol, and dark chocolate. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is black olive and black currant blend with notes of black cherry and crush stone minerality. We also detected some hints of oolong tea, oak and black plum mixed in. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. The Tasting Panel would pair this wine with a New York strip steak or a charcuterie board. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The color is deep, intense ruby-red with purple highlights. The nose, intense and powerful, revealing black fruit aromas dominated by blackberries, blueberries, and black olives, mingling with fresh spices and delicate balsamic, graphite and roast hazelnut nuances due to barrel ageing. The palate starts out powerful and complex, becoming wonderfully concentrated and full-bodied, underpinned by a tight-knit, fine tannic structure. Very well-balanced mid-palate with natural freshness, revealing a complex array of flavors elegantly combining notes of blackcurrant, blackberry and plum with spices and pepper, enhanced by a touch of ristretto. The finish is concentrated and well-balanced, with long-lasting black fruit aromas, followed by retro nasal notes of licorice, cedar, and toasted almonds. The powerful, refined finish goes on and on, suggesting excellent ageing potential.
