Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Cabernet from J Davies is very good. It opens with a cranberry and pomegranate bouquet with hints of vanilla and faint blackberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a black raspberry, with notes of black cherry and strawberry with hints of spice black pepper and oak. The finish is dry and its acidity and moderate tannins linger and last for a while. The panel suggested pairing this Cab with pork tenderloin or beef wellington. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: This J. Davies Cabernet Sauvignon has dark perfumed aromas of Marion berry jam with hints of cocoa, vanilla cream, and tobacco. The palate is bold, complex and fruitful. Flavors of blueberry and wild mountain blackberry mingle with baking spice and dark chocolate, and are seamlessly brought together with fine grain tannins that sustain a long, dense finish.
