Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from opens with a black cherry bouquet with hints of wet stone and oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced mild black cherry with notes of plum and oak. I also detected a hint of raspberry towards the end. The finish is rather dry and its dusty tannins stick around for a very long time. I would decant this Cab briefly and then pair it with grilled steak tips. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: With its classic varietal Cabernet profile, this focused wine shows layers of dark fruit, espresso, violet, and herbal notes. Layers of blackberry and cassis mingle with dusty tannins through a persistent finish.
