Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Cameron Hughes was a very good consensus winner in our first big bling tasting. It opens with a black cherry and strawberry licorice bouquet with hints of subtle vanilla and light toasted American oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a pleasant cherry-vanilla with hints of oak, blueberry, tea, and mild strawberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are rather sticky. The panel felt this easy drinking Cab would pair well with braised short ribs or roast duck. Enjoy – KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Cassis, graphite, blackberry and mocha aromas leap from the glass. There is tremendous complexity to this wine. Dense and full-bodied, the palate echoes the cassis and blackberry nose, and boasts stellar structure. Eminently enjoyable near-term, and will age gracefully for 5-10 years.
