Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Napa Cabernet opens with a mild red currant and spicy plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, fruit forward, and juicy. The flavor profile is plum and craisin with hints of gentle blackberry and Dr. Pepper. The finish is dry and is moderate tannins are slightly sticky and linger for a while after the wine is gone. This Cab would pair well veal marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: It presents with dark hues and explosive ripe plum, strawberry and dark stone fruit. It then brings a beautiful mouth feel of full bodied texture, lingers with perfect balance and elegance while adding; floral notes, dry herbs and hints of cola to the abundant fruit. This exceptional wine follows with a long finish of dark chocolate, floral notes, spicy oak and plum liquor.
