Winemaker's Notes:

Dark plum color with a nose reminiscent of black cherries with a touch of cinnamon and cloves. Brimming with ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit with a touch of white pepper and dill; this Cab finishes with notes of currants and strawberry rhubarb pie filling.

Lamb chops with mint jelly, beef and porcini mushrooms in an oyster sauce, or even big veal meatballs in a rich tomato sauce over your favorite pasta would pair well with this Cabernet. With enough structure to stand up to hearty dishes, its fruit is enough to enjoy as the appetizer itself.
