Wine Review: This deep ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with black currant and blackberry bouquet with a hint of saddle leather and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is silky smooth, very well-balanced, and voluptuous. The flavor profile is black currant and stewed black plum blend with notes of crush stone minerality and oak. Hint of rooibos tea and clove. The finish is dry and its dusty fine tannins initially stick around for a very long time. With some aeration, they settle in and become nicely integrated. The Panel would pair this elegant and polished Cab with Stuart’s steak treats or with a mushroom risotto. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, this wine expresses rich complexity followed by dark fruit flavors and hints of cocoa with a satisfying finish that lasts right into the next sip. Enjoy this wine with a classic steak and vegetable meal, or pair it with dark chocolate for a decadent dessert. We are only producing 168 cases of this beauty!
