Wine Review: This pitch-black colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black cherry and cassis bouquet with hints of graphite and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round and savory. The flavor profile is black currant and blackberry blend with notes of integrated crushed stone minerality and black plum. We also detected hints of blueberry and dark chocolate. The finish is dry, and its dusty tannins build-up and last for a very long time. The Panel would decant this Cab and then serve it with a Wagyu steak or Jiko's wild boar tenderloin. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Grown on the rocky slopes of Mt. Veeder, the 2018 is mountain Cabernet at its finest. Aromas of blue and red fruits intermingle with a touch of baking spice. The tannins are firm yet refined while the weight on the palate is dense and lush. Compelling now, one can only imagine its true cellaring potential.
