Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County opens with a fragrant black currant and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a ripe boysenberry and black currant blend with notes of minerality and oak. I also detected hints of blueberry and cherry as well. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and mild tannins fade away nicely. This fruity Cab would pair well with Charlie Palmer's Colorado lamb rack with fingerling Lyonnaise potatoes. Enjoy - Ken
