Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cab opens with a very fragrant black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well balanced, and elegant. The flavor profile is a luscious spicy blackberry with notes of blueberry. The finish is dry and its well managed fine tannins drift away nicely. This extraordinary wine would pair perfectly with filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This powerhouse Cabernet Sauvignon is black/garnet in color and bursting with aromas of red currant and espresso, complemented by subtle smoky, savory notes. The weighty palate commands attention with pure, concentrated, sinuous layers of red and black fruits, mocha, dried herbs and tar. Hints of vanillin and clean earth complement big, chewy tannins on an enduring finish.
