Wine Review: This midnight blue colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa opens with blueberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty plum with notes of minerality and black currant. I also detected faint hints of spice and oak in the background. The finish is dry and flavors fade away nicely. The Cab would pair well with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Rich and savory, with aromas of ripe blueberry and graphite – the warmth of Calistoga really comes through here. On the palate, this is a dark, lush, brooding wine. Incredible density and structure, with beautifully integrated tannins and a strong blueberry element that comes back at the finish.
Organic status: not organic
