Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Kendall Jackson opens with black raspberry bouquet with hints of wet slate, black licorice and cigar box. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. It is easy to drink with round edges and juicy fruit. The flavor profile is a gentle black plum and acai berry blend with notes mild limestone minerality, black currant and cedar. We also detected hints of oregano and black coffee towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a while. We would pair this Cab with grilled steak tips or slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy – Ken & Jeoff

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.
