Wine Review: This very dark purple colored Cab from Yountville finished in 4th place in our big blind tasting. It opens with a mild ripe blackberry bouquet with hints of clove and cinnamon raisin toast. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very well balanced, and rather smooth. The flavor profile is a ripe blackberry with notes of black currant, nutmeg, and black pepper. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins are nicely prolonged. The panel thought this would pair well with beef stew or a ribeye. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our Peter Mondavi Family Cabernet Sauvignon meshes flavors of black cherry, currant and roasted coffee with clove and licorice aromas. This fruit filled wine finishes with supple tannins and lingering enjoyment.
