Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark garnet colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a fragrant black cherry and eucalyptus bouquet with hints of red currant, cedar and moist pipe tobacco. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and silky. The flavor profile is a tasty graphite influenced black currant and gentle cedar blend with hints of herbs, cherry licorice laces and nutmeg. The finish is dry and its refined tannins are nicely prolonged. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with a pan-seared duck breast or Italian beef braciole. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon shines this year with dusted cocoa, blackberry, anise; a middle body that is velvet to the touch with a tannin backbone that carries this wine for minutes after you have swallowed.
