Wine Review: This very dark violet Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit forward and very good. It opens a ripe black raspberry and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich and balanced. The flavor profile is a tasty mild blackberry and ripe black currant blend with notes of blueberry. I also detected hints of gentle mineralogy and faint oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are sticky and linger. This Cab is food friendly and versatile. I would pair with barbecue steak tips. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is intense with aromas of dark cherry and red plum. Notes of violet and blueberry jam come through on the mid-palate along with nuanced spice and licorice. The concentrated mouthfeel and soft tannins are a testament to this great vintage, coating the palate with a lingering red fruit finish.
