Wine Review: This dark red colored Cabernet opens with a mild black plum and black currant bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a pleasant black cherry with hints of oak and red licorice. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are a bit sticky. This is a very good everyday Cab. It would pair well with a Five Guys bacon cheese burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This bold Cabernet opens with flavors of dark fruit and black cherries, complemented by earth and mineral notes. Deep berry flavors and supple tannins lead to a soft cocoa finish. Food Pairings: Tomato-based sauces such as Bolognese and Puttanesca, intensely and richly flavored foods such as grilled meats, braised lamb shanks or pot roast, and strongly flavored cheeses.
