Wine Review: This dark garnet colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Turnbull opens with a mild black currant and black cherry bouquet with hints of cigar box and spearmint. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, very smooth and delicate. The flavor profile is tasty black cherry and blueberry blend with notes of graphite and red licorice. We also detected some hints of raspberry, gentle oak, milk chocolate and nutmeg. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins build up nicely and linger for a while. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cab with Roy’s prime rib roast or with a slow roasted beef brisket. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Fresh olallieberries and juicy red cassis captivate the nose to a sensory prelude of the generous symphony that awaits. Dimpled, superfine tannins reveal texture and structure as they dance along the palate, rounding out richness and freshness with refined precision. The interplay of these tannins creates a harmonious balance that carries the wine's complexity with grace. With each sip, lush blue and dark fruits cascade with opulence and abundance, extending all the way through to it's endless finish. Its aromatic beginnings of yumminess echo and reverberate, creating a sensory memory that remains long after the last sip.
