Wine Review: This pitch-black colored blend opens with a blackberry bouquet with hints of boysenberry and eucalyptus. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavors are a concentrated blend of macerated black cherry with notes of black raspberry and cinnamon. I also detected hints of clove and some oak. The flavors linger on the finish along with some moderate tannins. This wine is a fireplace sipper. Pair with sharp cheese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This 2017 Quest Cabernet-based blend displays a beautiful creamy menthol nose with hints of sweet coco. These aromas continue through the palette and evolve into rich flavors of dark chocolate and crisp mint; the result of being aged in American Oak barrels. As the flavor evolves on the palette, the soft supple tannins melt away leaving evergreen notes that linger long past the initial sip.
