Wine Review: This dark ruby colored red blend from Napa opens with a red currant and strawberry licorice like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a unique cedar and red currant blend with hints plum and cherry-cola towards the end. The finish is dry and its mild tannins and fruit flavors drift away nicely. This wine would pair well meat lasagna. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This soft, easy-drinking Cabernet is a good introduction to the vintage, and while it will improve over the course of three to eight years, it is not a wine intended for long-term cellaring.
