Wine Review: The very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a black currant and black cherry bouquet with hints of Baker’s chocolate and blueberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a black currant and oak blend with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected hints cedar, blackberry and black tea. The finish is rather dry and its substantial tannins are very sticky. I would decant this Cab for an hour + and serve it with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
