Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Cakebread is very good. It opens with a smoky oak and black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a red currant and black cherry blend with notes of cola, black raspberry and a hint of mocha. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins stick around from quite some time. The Panel suggested pairing the Cab with steak fajitas. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A big, ripe nose of fresh boysenberry, blackberry and dark cherry fruit, complemented by seductive roasted earth and dark chocolate scents, introduces lush, deeply concentrated flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry and cassis framed by firm, but supple tannins. The wine’s dramatically long, savory finish showcases rich, dark fruit with notes of chocolate, spice and toasted oak. Thoroughly delicious now, this complex, opulent, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will handsomely reward another 7-10 years' aging.
