Wine Review: This slightly opaque and very dark ruby colored Cab opens with a fragrant red currant and cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a slightly tart black cherry and red currant blend. There is also nicely integrated smoky oak and a dash of black pepper. The fruit is dry and its dusty oak tannins are sticky and linger for quite a while. This wine would pair nicely with steak au poivre. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine is quite concentrated with black cherry and currant fruit notes. There is also a nice spiciness with a little white pepper, anise and even some spearmint. The tannins are big and well integrated which will give this wine excellent holding power over the next 15 to 20 years.
