Wine Review: This red colored Cabernet opens with a mild black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty black cherry with notes of gentle oak and light plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins linger nicely. This wine is a very good glass poor option because it is versatile. I would pair it with steak tips. 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 with a hint of vanilla and cocoa dust. Firm, but approachable tannin structure accents a balanced and long finish.
