Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet from Kendall Jackson is very good. It opens with a black cherry and blackberry bouquet with a hint of peppermint and dark chocolate. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is round and balanced. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced black currant with notes of oak and blackberry. I also detected some hints of blueberry and cola. The finish is dry, and its fine tannins and flavors fade away nicely. This Cab would pair nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

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