Wine Review: This very dark red and slightly opaque Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia opens with a pomegranate and craisin like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, fresh and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a ripe red plum with notes of pomegranate and clove spice. I also detected hints of cranberry and strawberry. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and mild tannins are nicely prolonged. This Cabernet would nicely a thick cut of prime rib. Enjoy - Ken
