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

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
