Wine Review: The boys from Lodi have done it again. They stole the show and won our recent big blind tasting of mid tier priced Cabs. This offering is very dark purple colored and opens with an attractive blend of mild blackberry, coffee, cinnamon, and clove like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very nicely balanced, smooth, and elegant. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black currant with notes of coffee, bacon, and milk chocolate. The finish is dry and its mild fine tannins are nicely prolonged. We would pair this wine with a Kobe Steak and a cigar. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Dark ruby color that opens with a cherry vanilla and slightly tobaccco bouquet. Smooth and soft with tart cherry like flavor that are influenced by black currant, cocoa, vanilla and oak. Moderate tannins that leave a lingering finish.
