Wine Review: This garnet colored Cab opens with a fragrant menthol infused black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, soft, and balanced. The flavor profile is a light cherry with notes of strong old oak and a hint of dark chocolate. The finish is quite dry and its substantial tannins last for quite some time. The panel thought this wine would pair well with beef stew or blackened tuna. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Dark and densely concentrated, expressive aromas of blackberry, currants and subtle notes of thyme and cinnamon lead to flavors of blackberry, black plum and a bit of black olive. Knit together with big, mouth-coating tannins, this is an engagingly well-structured, bold-statement wine.

Organic status: not organic
