Wine Review: This bold red blend from Australia is a foreboding inky dark ruby color. Its dark bouquet includes black cherry, new leather, tar, blackberry, and hot cocoa aromas with underlying freshly dug earth notes. Once giving it several minutes of air, I found it to be full bodied, moderately acidic, very extracted, and rich. There are flavors of cassis, red cherry compote, toasty oak, and dark chocolate, along with hints of earth and black olives. The finish is dry, with grippy tannins, and has good length. Pair with a thick slice of bacon wrapped smoked meatloaf. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: A Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend of four varietals from a combination of vintages. The result is a go-to beauty for fans of big, bold reds. Packed with notes of berries and cocoa, this gem features balanced acidity, smooth tannins and notable length round out this gem. Calling all die-hard Cab fans!
