Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley is very nice. It opens with a mild black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and a little fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant and blueberry blend with notes of black cherry and a hint of minerality and chocolate. The finish is dry and its flavors and fruit fade away nicely. This Cab will be a crowd pleaser and even got better on day two and three. I would pair it a Roy’s rib roast. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Medium brick red color with rich, sappy French oak notes with ripe black cherry and cassis. The palate is supple and ripe with light cocoa and sweet dark chocolate covered cherry notes. The palate is super concentrated and reveals a core of ripe fruit from huckleberry to plum and then back to cherry again. The cassis notes reappear on the palate and finish with soft and elegant tannins, which will allow for extended cellaring through 2030. I like this wine with beef tenderloin or slow cooked short ribs with parsnip mashed potatoes and English peas. This wine is also fun to drink on its own or with a rich chocolate dessert.
