Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored Napa Cabernet was a hit with our mini tasting group. It opens with a ripe black raspberry bouquet with a hint of blueberry and mild oak. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, rich and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is an extracted blackberry and black currant blend with notes of black licorice. I also detected a hint of boysenberry and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are well managed and drift away nicely. This wine went well with our Kobe cap steak at Grill 23. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon derives depth and breadth of character from the diverse terroir represented by State Lane, Beckstoffer Dr. Crane, Beckstoffer Las Piedras, Flat Rock and Stagecoach vineyards. Black garnet in hue, concentrated aromas of black currant, blackberry and lavender delight. Freshly cut flowers, cedar, caramel and violets entice the palate. The fruit is pure and elegant, displaying faceted layers of dark cherry, cassis and plum. Velvety tannins wave together with layers of milk cocoa, anise and graphite to create a charming and lengthy finish.
