Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Patent Wines is a big boy! It opens with black cherry cola and black currant bouquet with hints of faint cedar, eucalyptus, and violets. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated moderate acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and quite rich. The flavor profile is concentrated black cherry and toasty oak blend with notes of blackberry, blueberry, and crushed stone minerality. We also detected hints of vanilla, nutmeg, and plum as well. The finish is dry, and its bold and sticky tannins last for a very long time. The Tasting Panel would decant this Cab before pairing it with New York strip steak or roast beef with Yorkshire pudding. If per chance, you have any leftover on day two, it is even better. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: After 22 months in barrel, this wine has a rich garnet color, and classic Cabernet aromas with leather, cocoa, and spice. With touches of chestnut and nutmeg, it comes off clean. Consistent with flavors that continue the aromatics, with ample tannin and body to age beyond the next decade, but delightful now with anything barbequed and rich after decanting to add oxygen to allow it to open up.
