Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Knights Bridge is a hedonistic delight. It opens with a fragrant and inviting black cherry and cassis bouquet with a hint of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, concentrated and rich. The flavor profile is a black currant, blackberry and oak blend with notes of black tea, black licorice and minerality. I also detected a hints plum and tart cherry towards the end. The finish is dry and its sticky tannins build-up and last for a very long time. This is a pretty complex Cab. It will take some time for the tannins and oak to resolve. If you can't wait to try it, decant it for a while and serve it with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Well-structured with rich smooth tannins, our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon offers lovely aromas of dark plum, blueberry and violet on the nose. Layers of ripe dark and red fruits immerse the palate, complemented by hints of brown sugar, white pepper and savory herbs. This wine shows a structure, vibrancy and sharp finesse that will allow it to age gracefully. Enjoy now through 2026.
