Wine Review: The very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Joseph Phelps opens with a blackberry and dark chocolate bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is black currant and dark cocoa blend with hints of black coffee and plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are slightly extended. This Cab would pair well with a beef tenderloin. Enjoy! – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is ultra-concentrated with dense black fruit, anise, roasted coffee, ripe blueberries, cedar box and graphite. A fresh and focused wine with creamy texture and a long luscious mouth feel with dusty earth, baking spices, sweet vanilla and fresh fig notes.
