Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stags Leap district is very impressive. It opens with an attractive black cherry and cassis bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and rich. The flavor profile is an extracted blackberry with notes of oak, black cherry and black pepper. I also detected hints of boysenberry and plum. The finish is dry and its tannins build up and linger and last for quite some time. This big Cab will pair well with a cowboy ribeye. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Powerful and complex, this deep garnet wine offers alluring aromas of ripe black cherry, red raspberry and rich dark plum that mingle with layers of cocoa powder, cassis and black licorice. The entry is lush and silky, filling the mouth with bright flavors of strawberry preserves and red currant that lead into touches of creamy vanilla toast, dried sage leaf and maple-brown sugar on the impeccably structured finish, supported by smooth, velvety tannins.
