Wine Review: This opaque and deep violet colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Dry Creek opens with a fragrant and attractive black currant bouquet with hints of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused oak with notes olive and blueberry. I also detected a hint of plum. The finish is dry and its dusty moderate tannins linger and last for quite some time. This Cab improves with aeration and is much better after open for an hour. It would pair nicely with slow cooked beef brisket. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: At first swirl, this rich and deep wine has cedar, black cherry and spicy notes. On the palate, elegant flavors of black currants, lush plums and cherries that are silky and smooth. The tannins are refined and polished with a lengthy finish. A mouth-filling completeness from start to finish with a structure that offers potential aging for years to come.
