Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend opens with a black cherry and red plum bouquet with a hint of wet stone and red raspberry. On the palate, this wine full bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, smooth, and silky. The flavor profile is mild cherry, mulberry and fine minerality blend with notes of red raspberry. We also detected hints of black tea, clove, and cinnamon. The finish is rather dry, and its dusty tannins last for a very long time. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab blend with Jiko's wild boar. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: With a flavor profile distinctly influenced by its volcanic basalt soil, Ferguson is a richly structured and energetic wine offering complex, mineral-laced aromas of blackberries, mulberry, fragrant violet, and sandalwood. Layers of dark fruit and espresso are framed by expressive tannins integrated with graphite and crushed rocks on the palate. Intense, racy, and structured, Ferguson’s pronounced natural acidity carries through to a compelling and enduring finish.
