Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend is very good and was well received by our mini-tasting group. It opens with a mild black currant and oak bouquet with a hint of black tea. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with hints of black raspberry and boysenberry jam. The finish is dry and its mild tannins and fruit flavors are nicely prolonged. I would pair this very good wine braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken
