Wine Review: This Cabernet blend made by Aaron Pott is Excellent. It blew away the mini-panel that tried it. It is very dark ruby colored. It opens with a very attractive blueberry bouquet with hints of black cherry, dark chocolate and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, nicely balanced and consumes your taste buds. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry with notes of beautifully integrated dark chocolate. I also detected hints of black cherry, coffee, spice, oak and blueberry. The finish is dry and it builds up as its flavors drift away over a very extended period of time. This wine would be perfect with a well-marbled dry aged ribeye at you favorite steakhouse. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Black Cherry, toffee, vanilla, black currant, cocoa, rich attack of coconut, toffee, cherry and nutmeg, medium density, with good structure and close knit tannins, good length, finishing on toffee, chocolate and cherry with good persistence.
