Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Freemark Abbey opens with cassis, coffee and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and polished. The flavor profile is a mocha and coffee blend with notes of black currant and a streak of gentle minerality. I also detected a hint of RC Cola and cedar. The finish is dry and its moderate refined tannins fade away nicely. This Cab is ready to go now and would pair very nicely with a New York strip steak with caramelized shallots. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Opaque, dark ruby in color, this wine expresses dark fruit aromas and flavors of blackberry, black currant, and dark cherry. There are nuances of dark chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, and a hint of tobacco. The sweet oak spice is well integrated, adding to the overall complexity. Full-bodied with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry flavors that develop from start to finish. With great texture, integrated tannins, and pleasant mouth feel, this Cabernet is rich and opulent.
