Wine Review: This opaque and onyx colored Cabernet opens with an attractive black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is a gentle black currant with notes of plum and black cherry with a touch of minerality and spice mixed in. The finish is dry and its fine tannins drift away nicely. This impressive wine would pair very nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Opaque crimson color, intriguing nose of freshly tilled Napa vineyard soil. The presence of this wine includes fine textural components balanced by an array of flavors including; ripe cherry, dried rose petal, cacao, mocha and cassis. A seamless, rich and alluring,youthful Napa Cabernet. I find this vintage perfectly complex and balanced. This will go down in our books as a difficult year that yielded a small production of very fine wine.
