Wine Review: This opaque and pitch black colored Cabernet opens with a black currant bouquet with a hint of black cherry and anise. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty cedar infused blueberry with notes of black currant and a touch of black plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins fade away nicely. This is a good glass pour option and it would go well with pub food like meatloaf or shepherd’s pie. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Appearance: Deep Garnet Aromas: Complex and vibrant aromas of red plum, anise, cherry, violets, and tobacco accentuated by notes of black currant, dried herbs, toasted oak, and cocoa. Flavors: Elegant and supple texture on the palate make the frame for generous flavors of sweet plum and dark cherry, with notes of vanilla and mocha. Silky tannins and well-integrated structure tie together and linger in the finish.
