Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a mochaccino and blackberry bouquet with hints of cigar box. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a mocha and blackberry blend with notes of cedar and cassis. I also detected hints of thyme and blueberry. The finish is dry and its refined tannins drift away nicely. This wine benefits from aeration. I would decant it for at least 30 minutes before enjoying it with Stuart’s Beef Wellington. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Coeur de Vigne represents a vibrant rendition of a classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the nose offers rich aromas of blackberry and blueberry that meld with hints of graphite, lavender and thyme. This wine is full-bodied on the palate with mouthcoating tannins, while also maintaining bright acidity. Flavors of tart fruit and cocoa dusted coffee beans flirt with baking spices. The long finish highlights undertones of toasted new oak, suggesting the wine will develop beautifully over time.
