Wine Review: This pitch black colored blend opens with a black currant bouquet with hints dark chocolate and anise. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, spicy and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with notes of blackberry. I also detected hints of plum and oak. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins linger and last for quite some time. This Cab based wine would pair well with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: Deep dark plum with hints of boysenberry and lipstick. On the Nose: Explosion of thyme, paprika and curry with chocolate, cherry, macerated strawberry and hibiscus. On the Palate: Soft velvety entrance evolving on structured tannins with cherry, currant, cassis and blackberries lingering on blue fruit jam.

Organic status: not organic
