Wine Review: This ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a green pepper and black olive bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a black olive and black currant blend with notes of black licorice and old oak. I also detected hints of minerality and a touch of plum. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins are slightly extended. This Cabernet is food friendly and would pair well with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Bright violet color, pure and intense in aromas, offering explosive dark and red berry flavors and a silky, polished texture, with a fresh feeling of a crushed basaltic rocks. This Cabernet is a full expression of our vineyard, showing a real softness of tannins and mineral notes from our Los Lingues Estate.
