Intense ruby red with bright highlights. On the nose, red fruit, spicy and green pepper, nutmeg and licorice. It has sweet, firm tannins that give the body and structure characteristic of the strain. Its finish is nice and long.
Passionate and polite, this wine accompanies meat dishes with sauce (pepper, for example), emphatic and buttery cheeses, stews, well-seasoned white meat (pork) and tamales.
"The purple-colored 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon was also fermented and aged in tank. It offers up notions of Asian spices, incense, cassis, and black currant. This informs the nose of a savory, ripe, sweetly-fruited, impeccably balanced wine that delivers outstanding value. Drink this overachiever now and over the next 5 years."
