Wine Review: The color of this Cab is dark ink red and the bouquet is an inviting, earthy and hardy with berry fruit including blueberries and blackberries, oak, mocha and coffee. I particularly enjoyed the full bodied palate which was smooth, fruity and included blackberries, malted milk chocolate, black pepper and nicely integrated tannins. This is a well-balanced and structured California Cab with a nice palate presence. The finish is smooth, slightly dry and lingers nicely. I would pair this Cab with a Kona coffee encrusted steak. - Joe
Winemaker Notes: Big and bold in style, Carnivor Cabernet offers intense, dark fruit aromas and deep, inky color. A plush, velvety mouthfeel frames rich flavors of dark berries, coffee, mocha and toasted oak, all backed by a distinctive smoothness and a lingering, silky finish.
