This big, bold Cab practically leaps from the glass with enticing aromas of cassis, anise, hay, blackberry and dark chocolate along with a delicious smokiness. To the palate, the wine is firm and concentrated with robust flavors of leather, raspberry and chocolate. As air is introduced into the mouthful of wine, one experiences the headiness of a cigar box. The finish is long and smooth with a lingering hint of dried fig, tobacco and chocolate.
Pair this wine with a sumptuous ribeye steak, maybe with a blue cheese and herb compound butter. Bring out your best dark chocolates for dessert!
Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 1% Syrah
