Wine Review: This opaque and pitch black colored Cabernet opens with a very mild black currant bouquet with a hint of blueberry and faint oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is black currant with a hint of blackberry and faint cedar and spice. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins make it ideal for a thick Kobe burger with sauteed mushrooms and Swiss. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A classic expression of Napa Valley Cabernet at its best: Remarkably rich and concentrated. Tantalizing entry - almost sweet with blackberry essence, it evolves into a plush, mouth filling compote of black fruit, beautifully integrated with woodsy and mineral notes, mocha, tobacco and clove. For all its volume the delivery is surprisingly fresh and supple, with a long, mocha-infused finish.
