Wine Review: This dark red colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Rockpile opens with an oak and currant bouquet with a hint of red plum. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry and plum blend with notes of oak. I also detected some chocolate covered strawberry and a touch of minerality mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely extended. This Cab is food friendly and would pair nicely with Theresa’s homemade meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark red in color. Black cherry-cola and cassis fruit, long and deep on nose and palate. Cedary oak spice and warm pipe tobacco aromas, dark chocolate, vanilla at finish, smoothly structured tannins.
