Wine Review: This opaque and very dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a mild black raspberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild oak and black cherry blend with notes of minerality and a touch of plum. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. This Cab is food friendly and would pair nicely with beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A classic Cabernet Sauvignon that is red-purple in color. It has a, complex nose that is reminiscent of berries, spice, cedar, chocolate. The nose carries through to the palate, delivering a rich, luscious texture with berry and cedar flavors. It is a well-balanced wine with a long, pleasing finish. Serve at room temperature with red meats, lamb, cheeses.

Organic status: not organic

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.
