Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black currant, oak and mushroom bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is black currant and boysenberry blend with notes of black cherry and oak. I also detected hints of oolong tea and craisin. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are food friendly. This paired perfectly with my with my Switchback Ale braised short ribs with smoked cheddar mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus at the Reluctant Panther. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep ruby in color with intense dark fruit aromas of ripe black cherry, black currant and plum interlaced with complex notes of sweet herbs, clove, vanilla, dark chocolate, and toasty oak. Blackberry, cocoa, and black peppercorn unite on the layered palate with complex notes dark berry and cassis with highlights of bay, anise and mocha. Full yet elegant on the palate, with vibrant fruit and very approachable tannins with hints of nutmeg and vanilla bean add to the long persistent finish.
