Wine Review: This opaque and onyx colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State opens with fragrant boysenberry bouquet with hints of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, smooth and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty boysenberry with notes of blackberry. I also detected some hints of black pepper and a touch of minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are soft and nicely restrained. This Cab is very food friendly and would pair well with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Cabernet from this iconic 40-year-old vineyard consistently delivers power, structure and rich concentrated black fruit. This is a dense, decadent wine with great aging potential. The 2009 vintage is 100% pure Cabernet with intense dark blackberry and plum fruit flavors and long finish. This is a true steakhouse red!
