Winemaker's Notes:

Medium-red color. Dark, Bordeaux-like aromas of currant and cedar, medium-full body, bright red currant and ripe cherry-like fruit on the palate, notes of cocoa and roasted coffee, very lively on the palate, a touch of oak (but not sweet) and cedar. Nice balance and shows exceptional length. This is not a fruit bomb--it has the real depth and class that many wines at twice the price wish they had. Should pair well with any veal or beef dish, lamb, pork loin or chops, and chicken dishes made with mushrooms. Pretty good with medium-strong cheeses, too.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon
