Wine Review: This inky purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Mt. Brave opens with blueberry and black raspberry bouquet with hints of cigar tobacco and espresso. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, balanced and initially a little austere. The flavor profile is a crushed stone influenced mild ripe blackberry and blueberry blend with notes of oak and black currant. We also detected hints of black pepper and espresso mixed in. The finish is initially rather dry and its monster dusty tannins require decanting for at least an hour in the near term. Even after some decanting this Cab’s tannins will stick around for quite some time. As a result, this Cab needs will need to be paired with a dry-aged ribeye steak encrusted with Kona coffee. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and opulent but maintains an underlying thread of pure finesse. Blackberries and spice jump from the glass followed by secondary notes of dark chocolate and anise. Perfectly balanced acidity leads to a long, memorable finish. Beguiling now, the 2017 will charm your cellar for years to come.
