Wine Review: This very dark violet Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma Mountain is a fruit bomb. It opens with a fragrant blackberry and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, juicy and very fruit forward. Like the bouquet this wine is an extracted blackberry and black raspberry blend with notes of oak and minerality. I also detected a little plum and black licorice towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite some time. This Cab is a big boy. I would pair it with sharp cheddar cheese and stoned wheat crackers by the fire pit this summer. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Sonoma Mountain Cabernet opens with floral notes of violets and rose petals, underscored by candied cherry and mint. The tannins are bold and the palate is defined by minerals and red clay with flashes of deep, dark fruit and cedar. The structural integrity of this wine will allow for elegant aging. Drink in 6 months or hold for up to 10 years.

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.
