Wine Review: This opaque and midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Pina is terrific. It opens with a very attractive ripe black cherry and black currant bouquet with hints of vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and very smooth. This is a gentler Buckeye when compared to past vintages. The flavor profile is a delicious cherry-cola with notes of oak, boysenberry and plum. There is also a little bit of minerality towards the end which leads into a chalky dry finish. I also detected some moderate dusty tannins that are well managed and stick around for a while. I would pair this Cab with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

"Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit. Wine is art. It’s culture. It’s the essence of civilization and the art of living."
