Wine Review: This pitch-black colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens a black currant bouquet with hints of black olive, blackberry and black tea. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, nicely balanced and silky smooth. The flavor is a refined graphite with notes of black olive, black tea, oak and blackberry. I also detected hints black currant mixed in. The finish is dry and its fined grained tannins stick around for quite some time. This Cab benefits from some aeration, so decant it for a bit before enjoying with a well-marbled ribeye over the next couple of years. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Cabernet shows mountain intensity in its rich blackberry, black currant and cassis flavors. It’s bone dry, with thick but refined long tannins, and brightened by a fine burst of fruit and acidity. Blended with a little Merlot and Petit Verdot for complexity, it drinks beautifully now, and will age for a decade or longer.
