Wine Review: This slightly opaque and deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon based wine opens with black currant, black raspberry, and coconut bouquet with hints of black plum and black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, smooth, and savory. The flavor profile is toasted coconut, black currant and stewed black plum with notes of black olive and mocha. Hints of black (green) tea stony minerality, and cardamon. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. The Tasting Panel would pair this red blend with grilled hanger steak or with a charcuterie board. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Color: Garnet core with a cherry-red rim.
Nose: Ample, indulgent. A “European” savory aroma profile, refined, inviting. Spicy marinated olives, feta, semi-dried tomatoes. Coppa cured pork, saucisson sec. Thyme flowers, lavender, violets.
Palate: A glossy and resolved palate, malt, and toast. Generous, sweet fruits. The sweet American oak wraps around the core of dark fruits encapsulating everything the wine holds within. When the oak bubble is pierced, a burst of custard, goji berries, medjool dates and choc-malt creaminess is released. Oregano, hazelnut, and cinnamon season the palate. Structurally, the wine flares rather than focusses to a finish. A clarity to the tannins, a resolved palate.
