Wine Review: This pitch-black colored Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah blend opens with a mild black cherry and blueberry bouquet with a hint of graphite. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and dense. The flavor profile is a crushed stone and blackberry blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of loam, black tea, and a touch of black licorice in the mix. The finish is dry, and its dusty tannins linger and last for a very long time. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Savory varietal notes of Cabernet Sauvignon are layered with the overt dark fruit character of Petite Sirah. The bouquet of cocoa powder, caramel, and anise works in harmony with the black cherry fruit signature of this wine. Bright and focused on the palate with a firm and appetizing finish. Serve with a Santa Maria-style grilled tri-tip seasoned with a simple garlic, salt, and pepper rub.
