Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a pomegranate, oak and vanilla bouquet with hint of red currant. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, balanced and buildup some savory notes in your mouth. The flavor profile is a mocha driven black cherry and oak blend with notes of red currant and vanilla. The finish is firm featuring dry and slightly dusty tannins that build-up and linger for a while. The tannins in this wine while slightly elevated do not get in the way. They just call for some marbled meat. Serve it with grilled Angus steak tips. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This impeccable Cabernet Sauvignon initially displays lively aromatics of black cherry, black currant and dried cranberry. Additional airing reveals nuances of dried flowers, nutmeg, white pepper and cedar. The palate is full-bodied and rich with elegant flavors of ripe raspberry, black currant and fresh boysenberry with notes of cocoa powder, bay leaf, sage and sweet pipe tobacco. The wine is complex and youthful, with bright fruit characters and vibrant spice.
