Wine Review: This opaque and very dark red Cabernet Sauvignon based wine from Freemark Abbey opens with a very inviting cassis and blueberry bouquet with notes of graphite and hints of Werther’s Original candy. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral infused red cherry with notes of red plum and hints of cedar. The finish is rather dry and its sticky tannins are very lengthy. The Panel thought this impressive wine would pair well with Roy’s rib roast. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Dark cherry and blackberry aromas dominate the nose of this ruby colored wine, coupled with sweet oak spice and brambly forest floor, also known as Rutherford Dust. Well integrated oak spice adds to the complex nose. There are nuances of aromatic cedar, walnut meat, and dark chocolate. Full bodied and well balanced, Ted's Blend is chalked full of blackberry and cherry flavors that fill the palate from start to finish.
