Wine Review: This slightly opaque and medium ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford opens with boysenberry and cranberry bouquet with hints of black cherry, bay leaf, and faint smoked meat. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel smooth, polished, and well-balanced. The flavor profile is a blend of juicy black plum and oolong tea along with notes of hazelnuts and maraschino cherry. We also detected hints of oregano, gravely minerality, and cranberry. The finish is dry, and its flavors and dusty tannins are nicely extended. The Panel would pair this Cab with New York strip steak or veal chop. 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.
