Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a boysenberry and black plum bouquet with a hint of pencil shavings. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, refined and round. The flavor profile is gentle plum and black cherry blend with notes of mild minerality. We also detected hints of cinnamon, licorice and oak. The finish is dry and its fine-grained tannins drift away nicely. The Panel would pair this Cab with a tenderloin of beef in a mushroom, Dijon mustard and red wine sauce or duck confit. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This beautifully aromatic wine begins with luxurious layers of ripe strawberry, damson plum, and grenadine, as well as spicy notes of cinnamon and clove. The palate is inviting and rich, offering energetic tannins that frame the brambly fruit, and oak-inspired accents of cocoa and graham cracker. Bright and supple, this juicy expression of Red Mountain Cabernet glides to a long, complex finish, with hints of earth and generous red berry flavors.
