Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black current bouquet with a hint of black licorice. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a rich black currant and black olive blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of dark chocolate, blueberry and gentle minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins linger for a very long time. This Cab is food friendly and would pair well with Theresa's meatloaf. Enjoy - Ken
