Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alexander Valley opens with mild black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and tangy. The flavor profile is black cherry and oak blend with notes of dark chocolate. I also detected hints blueberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannin linger for a bit. This Cab’s flavors open up with a little air. So, decant in the near term and pair with your favorite burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vibrant aromas of black cherry, plum, cardamom, cedar, sage and sandalwood spice awaken the senses, while full-bodied flavors of licorice, leather, cocoa, vanilla and toasty caramel generously fill the palate. Lingering notes of toasty leather round out the finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with roasted red meats such as lamb or beef.
