Wine Review: This medium purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from J. Davies was very well received by the Tasting Panel. It opens with red plum and red cherry bouquet with hints of balsam fir and black berry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is soft, silky smooth and nicely balanced. The flavor profile is cocoa and black currant blend with notes of mild black tea and chocolate cherry cordial and a hint of boysenberry. The finish is dry and its moderate polished tannins that are nicely extended. The Panel would pair this Cab with a New York strip steak or veal chop. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2018 J. Davies Estate Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dense black plum, vibrant blackberry, rich cocoa, and notes of black pepper, complimented by undertones of tobacco leaf and mountain sage. Flavors of marionberry, black cherry, baking spice and mocha lead to a lush and coating finish. Youthful yet integrated, tannins anchor the wines rich mouth-filling weight.
