Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Kendall Jackson opens with plum and cranberry like bouquet with a hint of red raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, round and approachable. The flavor profile is a mild black plum and gentle oak blend with notes of nicely integrated soft minerality with a hint of black currant. The finish is dry and its mild tannins stick around for quite some time. While this Cab is not the most complex wine, it is tasty and will be a crowd pleaser, I would pair it with a juicy bacon burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of lush, bright black cherry, blackberry and cassis draw you in. Round, rich, seamless tannins provide a robust backbone and supple mid-palate. Notes of cedar, vanilla and a hint of mocha linger on the finish.
