Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State opens with a pleasant black cherry and black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a ripe black cherry and plum blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of black raspberry. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors linger for a while. I would pair this fruity Cab with a barbecue bacon burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Borne of Fire epitomizes the terroir of The Burn. This rugged, yet elegant wine leads with herbal expressive aromas laced with pomegranate and stony minerals. Upon tasting the wine, powdery tannins frame flavors of cherry, currant, savory spice, and red pepper. A green coffee inflected finish rounds out the overall experience. Pairs well with beef sliders, Caribbean pork sandwich and garlic chicken wings.
