Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black cherry and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, super smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is black cherry, black plum, and graphite blend with notes of oak and blueberry. The finish is dry and its refined tannins stick around for a very very long time. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab with a New York strip steak or just sip it on its own. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Only 500 cases were produced of this immensely elegant wine. Incredibly bold yet refined, the palate marvelously features black current and espresso flavors, and the 75% new French oak provides perfect additions of cedar and caramel. This finely crafted wine is soft and generous to drink now and will develop gracefully over time.
