Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alexander Valley opens with an attractive black currant and black plum bouquet with notes oak, menthol and tobacco leaf. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with plus acidity. The flavor profile is a very tasty black currant and vanilla-oak blend with notes of blueberry and cherry-cola and some hints of spice. The finish is dry and its supple moderate tannins drifted away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with short ribs or shepherd's pie. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Deep ruby in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a huge amount of blueberry, plum, and violets on the nose, with oak spices shining through. On the palate, blue fruit flavors combine with cassis and plum to create a very deep berry and fruit profile. The wine finishes with strong oak spice supported by the tannic structure. Very drinkable with a strong acidity complementing the tannins and fruit flavors. Drink now, or cellar for up to 15 years.
