Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cab based wine was very well received by our mini panel. It opens with a red currant like bouquet with a hint of peppermint. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, and refined. The flavor profile is a blend of mild red currant and light raspberry with integrated notes of spice and light oak. There is also a dash of black pepper on the back palate. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins tingle at first, then drift away nicely over time. This Cab has nice finesse and would pair well with food. We suggest a NY strip steak with garlic mashed potatoes and red beets. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "Bright aromas of boysenberry and cassis combine with mulled spice, orange peel, and cassia bark. The palate is dense, complex and fruitful. Wild blueberry and blackberry mingle with clove and black tea spice, which are seamlessly brought together with integrated tannins that sustain a long and luxurious finish." - Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
