Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet from Pina finished tied for second in our first big blind tasting. It opens with a plum bouquet with a hint of wet stone and eucalyptus. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, elegant and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty black currant with nicely integrated minerality and smoky old oak. We also detected hints of plum and black cherry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. The panel suggested that this tasty Cab would pair well with Stuart's rosemary steak treats, prime rib, or sipping alone by the fireplace. Enjoy – KWGTP

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.
