Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a light oak and red cherry bouquet with hints of strawberry licorice and earth. On the palate, this wine is light to medium bodied, balanced, smooth and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild Bing cherry and creamy vanilla with hints of red raspberry and plum. The finish is slightly dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Cab is easy to drink and would be a nice option with your favorite pizza. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The color of this generous Cab is medium plum with light brick edges indicating an age worthy wine. The aromas are classic Bordeaux with cassis, black cherry and rich plum. On the palate, this wine is rich with deep plum and cassis notes with medium and integrated tannins from the French oak aging and is balanced well between the fruit and alcohol level. The wine finishes with intense berry fruit and is ripe with fresh Bing cherry and boysenberry flavors displaying textbook Cabernet tannins which make the wine very appealing now, yet appropriate for long term cellaring and will reward patience.
