Wine Review: This dark red colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a fragrant and attractive blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black cherry with notes of cedar and gentle plum. I also detected a hint of boysenberry. The finish is dry and its well-controlled moderate tannins fade away nicely. This Cab is very well made and would pair well with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Striking an enticing balance between liveliness and density, this vintage offers plush, round aromas of dark fruit and herbs followed by a mouth-filling blend of blackberry, black cherry, balsamic-infused strawberry, blueberry, cassis, herbs, and mocha. The whole package bears the stamp of Stags Leap District with ripe, easy-to-love tannins and a long, complete finish.
