Wine Review: This deep purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with very fragrant black olive, new oak, tar, and black licorice bouquet. with hints of blueberry and blood orange. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with nicely integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is smooth, nicely balanced, and juicy. The flavor profile is black licorice, blackberry, and crushed stones blend with notes cedar, fig paste, and orange zest. We also detected hints of dark chocolate, rhubarb, and green peppercorns. The finish is dry with chewy tannins. The Panel would pair this Cab with burnt ends or roast duck. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The nose is perfumed and complex with outstanding aromas of ripe red and black fruits over subtle notes of crème de cassis, tobacco, and leather. Spice aromas of red and black pepper mingle with cinnamon and dark chocolate notes. In palate is smooth but structured, with silky tannins.
