Wine Review: This inky purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Evidence opens with black currant, blueberry and crushed gravel bouquet with hints of lilac and oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced black currant and black licorice blend with notes of oak and black plum. We also detected some hints of blackberry, black pepper, mint & black tea mixed in. The finish is dry and its moderate fine-grained tannins drift away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with braised short ribs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: A tannic, meaty, balanced mountain wine with a full-bodied structure, and wide, long mid-palate that washes over the sides of the tongue with Black fruit influences, and tight minerality. Perfectly balanced acidity fills out the back end and finishes with a long, lingering Blue fruit splash, provoking an earthy wash of chocolate, berries and sandalwood. Unmistakable hints of tobacco, nutmeg and Crème Brulee carry this wine to the end and help to display its multi-layered spectrum of Mt. Veeder structure and dusty, savory influences.
