Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State is a big boy wine! It opens with a fragrant black currant and blackberry bouquet with a hint of spearmint. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with wonderfully integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, smooth, and rich. The flavor profile is delicious blend of rich black currant and blackberry with notes of cedar and black tea. I also detected hints of black licorice and graphite. The finish is dry and its bold and dusty tannins stick around for a very long time. This is a wine that you can certainly sip by the fireplace this winter, or you can decant for a while and serve with a well-marbled ribeye steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Combining classic Red Mountain aromas of candied cherry, sarsaparilla, sage and star anise with notions of Angostura bitters, grenadine, orange zest and juniper, this tantalizing wine draws you in with its bouquet. On the palate darker fruits emerge, with luxurious layers of blackberry and cassis mingling with subtle hints of leaf tobacco, cinnamon, and spice. Throughout, shapely tannins frame the dynamic flavors while carrying the wine to a long finish with rich fruit and spice fireworks.
