Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a red currant and lingonberry bouquet with hints of black cherry and pipe tobacco. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, round and had a nice mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a mild oak and loam influenced ripe black cherry with notes of boysenberry. We also detected hints of black pepper and red currant. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty soft tannins show very nice length. The Panel would pair this Cab with slow cooked beef brisket or a boneless lamb shoulder. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Sourced from carefully selected vineyards throughout the region, this garnet-hued cabernet greets with aromas of redcurrant, black olive tapenade, and hints of wet stone. Juicy red fruits burst on the palate with a youthful intensity, with balanced acidity, fine-grained tannins and a lengthy finish.
