A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and
4% Cabernet Franc.
With deep ruby color, this Cabernet opens with inviting aromas of cherry, blackberry,
raspberry, currant and hints of cedar and cocoa. Concentrated flavors of boysenberry, raspberry, red cherry and currant followed by notes of black pepper and vanilla in the long, smooth finish. A rich, full mouth feel with nicely balanced tannins and structure.
This wine pairs well with grilled rib eye or pork chops, steak tartare, chorizo and
seafood paella, wild mushroom and scallop risotto, smoked duck sausage over polenta, garlic marinated prime rib, braised lamb shanks, pork or beef barbequed ribs and hearty pasta dishes such as baked rigatoni.
While delicious at an early age, this wine has the potential to be cellared for 10-15 years
past the vintage date.
Wonderful wine, very smooth, excellent with most beef dishes
Let sit for 30 minutes and this wine opens up great. Every glass was better than the last
Big & Bold
Beautiful cherry color; Inviting nose of smokey oak, cedar, cocoa and red fruit; Full-bodied Cab...rich on the palate with cassis, currants and hints of spicey oak...all very nicely balanced; Tannins were a bit strong at first, but decanted (w/Soiree) for about an hour and the fruit really opened up; Long, elegant finish with just a hint of chocolate. This is a wine you can feel confident serving....everyone will enjoy it!
