Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with black currant and red plum like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a black cherry and coffee blend with notes of minerality and toasty oak. I also detected hints of black licorice as well. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a while. This Cab is a very good burger wine and is offered at a very attractive price. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This bold style Cabernet Sauvignon displays great complexity and structure. There are aromas of dark berry fruits and plum on the nose with chocolate and vanilla on the palate. This wine pairs well with beef tenderloin or hearty pasta.
