Wine Review: This dark red colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Freemark Abbey opens with a faint blueberry and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle graphite influenced black currant with notes of juicy plum. I also detected a hint of five spice. The finish is dry and its dusty well-managed tannins linger and last for a while. I would pair this Cab with a New York strip steak. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark ruby in color, the flavors such as blackberry, boysenberry and Bing cherry dominate with nuances of milk chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, aromatic cedar and Herbs de Provence. The sweet oak spice is very well integrated, adding to the overall complexity. The body is very full, with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry flavors that develop from start to finish.
