Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet opens with a pretty black cherry bouquet with a hint of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral infused black raspberry with notes of black pepper and plum. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins are sticky and linger for quite a while. This is a Good wine that reminds me a lot of Zinfandel. I would enjoy a glass with a messy rack of barbecue ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose sings with typical Cabernet characters of cassis, dark plums, blueberries, mint and bell peppers. Youthful and fresh the palate has a lovely leafy berry core than runs the whole way through to a lovely finish of fine mineral tannins. The oak is totally integrated and allows the fruit characters to star.
