Wine Review: This opaque and pitch black colored 100% Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a new leather and black cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and soft. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused black currant with a hint of plum. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are slightly prolonged. This Cab is elegant and food friendly. I would pair it with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: C.C. Ranch has a unique combination of floral and fruit, and this 2009 vintage continues to show this trademark. Plush cherry flavors are enhanced by floral characteristics that add dimension. The distinctive "Rutherford Dust" combined with spice and toast from the oak deepens its flavor and complexity. Smooth and rich, this wine expands on the middle palate, and the soft tannins that are associated with the Rutherford appellation melt away into a long, harmonious finish.
