Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Sebastiani opens with a mild black currant bouquet with hints of mulberry, cedar and black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle red currant and spiced plum blend with notes of minerality. We also detected hints of coffee and red cherry mixed in. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and a touch of heat linger nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Cab with a veal parmigiana with bow ties and Bolognese sauce. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense, ruby red color. Blackberry and English tea aromas with hints of dark chocolate and espresso set the stage for the rich palate. A full mouthfeel of dark fruit, clove spice and leafy characteristics accentuate this elegant Cabernet. The tannins are ripe and round, affording early drinkability. Loamy earth and mocha from the oak linger on the finish.
