Wine Review: This was my favorite offering from the impressive Koyle lineup. This Cab is dark ruby colored and opens with a menthol infused black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very nicely balanced, and silky. The flavor profile is a very tasty black cherry with notes of spice and a touch of black pepper. I also detected a hint of blueberry as well. The finish is dry and its mild tannins drift away nicely. This elegant Cab is a lot of wine for the money and would pair nicely with a filet mignon over the next 2 to 3 years. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark ruby color, fresh in flavor with a vivid array of black currant, blackberry, violet, black tea, and black pepper aromas that zoom through to a long, expressive finish. Tannins are present but nicely contained.
