Wine Review: This ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso not your typical Cab. It is more of a fruit bomb Zin. It opens with a pomegranate and red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is a ripe red plum with notes of cherry-cola and pomegranate. I also detected hints of pomegranate. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite a while. This fruity Cab would pair nicely with tangy pulled pork and savory baked beans. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Chocolate-covered mints with an earthy, mushroom aroma, along with vanilla and toasty oak spice. Hidden black fruits lurk behind all the earth and mint. A complex juicy mid-palate combines perfectly with a fruity, earthy finish.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
