Wine Review: This pitch-black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Jackson Estates opens with a mild black currant bouquet with hints of black cherry and black olive. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a graphite infused black currant, blackberry and black licorice blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of chocolate and black pepper mixed in. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins drift away nicely. This wine would pair well with Roy’s rib roast. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep black cherry, cassis and red currant flavors with graceful mineral tones. Well extracted, elegantly muscular, with chewy, soft tannins.
