Wine Review: This slightly cloudy and dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with a hint of cherry-vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a red plum and red currant blend with notes of cola, oak and some hints of black raspberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. This Cabernet would pair well with a Swiss, bacon and sautéed mushroom burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A vibrant and dense ruby color in the glass. The nose shows pure Cabernet Sauvignon varietal notes of iron shavings and graphite with blackcurrant. There is a touch of medium toasted oak present when first opened that graciously recedes to the background after a bit of air. The wine is plush and finely textured on the palate. The limestone laden soil yields wonderfully chalky tannins that carry the wine from the mid-palate, graciously through the lingering finish.
