Wine Review: This red blend from KJ's Highland Estates line-up opens with a very fragrant and attractive boysenberry bouquet with a hint of menthol. It draws you in. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a very tasty blueberry and mild raspberry blend. The finish is quite dry and its noticeable tannins are sticky and show nice length. This wine would be perfect with the NY Strip Steak and buttered beets at Grill 23. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Cabernet Sauvignon lends soft, sensuous tannins. The Merlot provides a smooth velvety finish. Dark fruit flavors abound in the bouquet and palate.
