Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with black raspberry and blueberry bouquet with hints of menthol, boysenberry, and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, very well-balanced and super smooth. This flavor profile is a delicious blend of cassis and mild graphite with notes of black tea, mild oak, clove and gentle blackberry. The finish is dry and its well-managed tannins stick around for a very long time. The Panel would pair this exceptional Cabernet with a well-marbled ribeye or braised short ribs. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pure, intense aromas of blackberry, cassis, perfumed violets, graphite and macerated berry skins leap from the glass, followed by layers of anise, vanilla, clove and dark chocolate. The luxurious berry and spice notes continue on the palate, where polished, mouth-filling tannins and a powerful structure add depth and gravitas to the deep, rich flavors, carrying the wine to a resonating dark berry and mocha finish.
