Wine Review: This dark ruby and opaque Cabernet from Stonestreet was one of our top finishers in our recent blind tasting. It opens with a very interesting blueberry bouquet with hints of smoky oak and black cherry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with a gentle streak of integrated minerality. We also detected hints of blackberry as well. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit flavors show nice length. The panel suggested pairing this impressive Cab with a New York strip steak or braised short ribs. Enjoy - KWGTP
