Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (88)

Review date: October 20, 2010

Wine Review: This dark ruby colored organic Cab seems to be Very Good every year. It opens with a black raspberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry and smoke. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and quite mellow and round in the mouth. The flavor profile is a mild black raspberry with hints of black cherry, cinnamon, and black pepper. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins are sticky and linger for quite a while. The panel suggested enjoying this Cab soon with some slow cooked beef brisket or braised short ribs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: With the 2007 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon, we wanted to focus on the dominate character of Cabernet Sauvignon while adding complexity from its kindred spirits of Franc and Merlot. The blend speaks for itself in the purity of the classic aromas and flavors the wine displays.
