Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black currant and fig bouquet with notes of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is bright and savory. The flavor profile is ripe blackberry, oak and stony minerality blend with notes of fig and oolong tea. I also detected hints of black raspberry and clove. The finish is dry, and its flavors and moderate tannins are nicely extended. This is a bolder version of Jordan Cabernet. I would pair it with a New York strip steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich aromas of ripe black cherry, Mission fig and dark chocolate mingle with a spice box of clove and nutmeg. The palate is filled with flavors of juicy blackberry and boysenberry that are enveloped in silky tannins, showing complexity beyond its years. Enticing flavors of fresh vanilla bean and hazelnut carry through a velvety richness that lingers on the finish.
