Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia opens with a boysenberry bouquet with hints of new leather and flint stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and quite smooth. The flavor profile is a graphite influenced mild plum with notes of black olive and some loamy earth and oak. I also detected a hint of prune on the back end. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins are noticeable and stick around for quite some time. This good value Cab would pair nicely with a juicy burger off the grill or some grilled steak tips. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine has a pretty nose, with lifted cassis and blueberry aromas. The palate is medium bodied and fresh, showing mulberry, black cherry and sage. There's nice fruit intensity, with vibrant acidity and plenty of spice. The finish is long and mouth-watering.
