Carol Shelton 2013 "Rockpile Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon, CA

Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)
Price: $50
KWG Score: 87
No. Professional Ratings: 2
# of Cases: 133
This midnight black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Rockpile opens with a mild black currant bouquet with a hint of blueberry. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a plum and elderberry blend with notes black raspberry. I also detected hints of espresso and minerality throughout. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins linger and last for quite some time. This is a Cab that Zin lovers will like. Lots of fruit. It went really well with braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken
