Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Merriam opens with a very fragrant black raspberry and blackberry bouquet with hints of wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is round and very juicy. The flavor profile is similar to the nose. It features ripe black raspberry and blackberry fruits along with mild stony minerality mixed in. I also detected some hints of cherry, cranberry, and oak towards the very end. The finish is dry, and its mild dusty tannins linger and last for a while. I would pair this easy to drink Cab with a juicy and thick bistro burger or with grilled steak tips. Enjoy - Ken.

Winemaker Notes: This approachable Cabernet has lovely aromas of red and blackberries, mocha and cinnamon with hints of fresh green bell pepper on the nose. On the palate integrated tannin and acidity showcase with notes of silky chocolate, dark leather, fresh berry juice and cracked pink peppercorn on the finish.
