Wine Review: This inky purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Linked opens with a blackberry and pencil shavings bouquet with hints of blueberry, black cherry, and cedar. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth, lush, and rich. The flavor profile is black currant, cedar, and black pepper blend with notes of graphite and eucalyptus. We also detected hints of dark cocoa and cola. The finish is dry, and its polished dusty tannins are very nicely extended. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab with a grilled bistecca alla fiorentina and or short ribs. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Linked Vineyards Cabernet is more intellectual than overtly sexy. It has our signature deep, dark, and vibrant color. The aromas start softly and blossom into ripe fruit (raspberry, huckleberry, and dewberry) and the earthy goodness of a roasted Hamakua mushroom, with faint floral hints of Plumeria. Flavors are mixed, subtle and even somewhat mystifying. The wine carries notes of bright bramble fruit, dark chocolate, candied orange peel, Kona coffee and caramelized molasses. Traces of Mr. Roarke’s soft Corinthian leather add depth and complexity. It is a wine with big, squishy (OK…. let’s go huggable) tannins that will drink well for quite some time to come!
