Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford opens with a black currant and vanilla-cola bouquet with hints of old leather and black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, round and smooth. The flavor profile is a black currant and toasty oak blend with notes of integrated minerality, black licorice, black raspberry and hints of mochaccino, nutmeg and a touch of mint. The finish is dry and its flavors and well-managed dusty fine-grained tannins drift away nicely. The Panel would pair this elegant Cab in the near term well with a filet mignon or black truffle mousse pate. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Dark garnet-purple in color. Presents a lifted bouquet with aromatics of plum and cherry combined with cedar box, dried herbs, graphite, mint and dusty earth. The wine offers a polished and alluring palate full of plum, dark maraschino cherry, roasted coffee bean, tobacco leaf, bergamot tea and subtle vanillin braced by a backbone of supple, dusty tannins. The structure builds to a lengthy, sustained savory finish balanced by the concentrated layers of fruit, dried herbs, and classic Rutherford soil-tinged minerality.
