Wine Review: This ink red colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with an earthy ripe plum bouquet that includes eucalyptus and oak with a touch of blackberry. On the palate, this medium bodied Cab from Lodi is quite juicy and jammy featuring ripe plum, cranberries, candied black cherries, mocha and coffee. The managed tannins are smooth and the finish slightly dry, leaning towards sweet and fruity. I would recommend serving this Cabernet with a burger smothered in sauteed mushrooms and onions. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: This Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and complex, but still easily approachable. Its dark cherry and toasted oak aromas lead into juicy black currant, raspberry and dark cherry flavors. The luscious, well-balanced wine has a sweet middle palate that finishes with a toasty oak component. Serve at room temperature with a variety of roasted, broiled or barbecued beef dishes.
