Wine Review: This opaque and very dark purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State opens with a blueberry bouquet with hints of black currant and sarsaparilla. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty black currant with notes of dark chocolate, black cherry and some black pepper. I also detected some oak and blueberry mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its medium tannins build up nicely and then drift away. This Cab is ready to go right now. I would pair it with a thick cut porterhouse steak. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of cherry lead into a palate ripe with raspberry, cola, almond, and vanilla flavors. The wine has a full mid-palate and a rich finish of chocolate and toasted coconut. This lush, rich wine is ready to enjoy now, but will age gracefully for years to come.
