Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile opens with a blackberry and black cherry bouquet with hints of black olive and Kiwi shoe polish. On the palate, this wine is round and medium bodied with well-managed medium acidity. The flavor profile is a black olive, black currant, and oolong tea blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of black licorice and blackberry towards the end. The finish is rather dry, and its dusty tannins stick around for quite some time. This hearty styled Cab would pair with rustic dishes. Give it a whirl with rustic Hungarian goulash or beef bourguignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep red with lush cherry, black currant, and blackberry aromas with a touch of tar and smoke. The highly concentrated flavors are framed by firm tannins. The texture is smooth, almost silky. It masks the firm tannic structure that lies below and only appears on the lingering finish. Pair with grilled, roasted, or stewed red meats and game with intense and slightly acidic sauces (tomato or wine)
