Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Review date: February 22, 2011

Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark ruby colored Cabernet opens with a fragrant black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant with a dash of black pepper and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins drift away nicely. This Very Good value Cab would pair well with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine displays a deep purple hue, and has great clarity for wine that is traditionally unfiltered. The bouquet offers scents of ripe black currant, smoke and saddle. Flavors include dark cherry and ripe plum flavors with a hint of vanilla and cocoa dust. Firm but approachable tannin structure accents a balanced and long finish.
