Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black currant, graphite, and eucalyptus bouquet with hints of blueberry and thyme. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. It is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a complex blend of graphite and black currant with notes of oak and oregano. We also detected hints of black tea and black raspberry. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins build-up and last for a very long time. The Panel would pair this Cab with Butcher Boy club steak with mashed potatoes or Stuart's steak treats. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: With its blackberry patch aromatics followed by hints of raspberry preserves and accents of leather, there's a ripe, pure fruit quality to this stunning new vintage. Generous layers of red fruit flavors fill the entry while subtle cocoa and baking spice undertones linger on the midpalate. Resolved tannins enhance the almost-velvety texture throughout the entire wine, and fresh botanical notes add vibrance to a finish that is at once long, luscious and lifted.
