Wine Review: This dark red colored Cabernet Sauvignon was very popular with the Tasting Panel. It opens with an attractive black currant bouquet with a hint of tea and bayberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a macerated black cherry with notes of vanilla oak, fine minerality, blackberry and tea. It was also noted that tannins crept up into palate. The finish is dry and those bold tannins stick around for a very long time. The Panel suggested decanting this big boy in the near term and serving it with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Royally rich in purple hues, this highly concentrated, intensely flavored wine offers rich and deep, dark fruits with blueberries, black cherries, blackberry and cherry jam, accented with dark chocolate, herbs and cassis. Full-bodied, with fine grained tannins and distinctive oak notes, finishing with mineral accents and a lively lift.
