Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville is very well made. It opens with a black currant and black cherry bouquet with a hint of cedar plank. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, round and savory. The flavor profile is a mild mineral and oak infused black currant with hints of black pepper, plum and black olive. The finish is dry and its managed dusty tannins stick around for quite a while. This Cab would pair well a New York strip steak. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Deep, enticing wild berry and black currant fruit weaves harmoniously with layers of fragrant tobacco leaf, forest floor and toast in a complex ribbon of flavor that flows into a deliciously long finish in this powerful yet refined taste of Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon.
