My Rating 93 Points.
Price $35.

Let’s welcome the weekend, with this gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dark ruby in color (Very intense) with a short purplish rim.

Gorgeous nose. Fruity and spicy with blackberries, figs, cooked cherries, raisins, beef jerky, green pepper, Mediterranean spices, brandy, vanilla, cedar, licorice, wood, chocolate, coffee, smoke and black pepper.

Full bodied and elegant, with medium plus acidity and great legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate, with blackberries, blueberries, figs, tobacco, cooked plums, oak, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cola, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with full, grainy tannins and peppercorn.

This is a Great Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. So enjoyable by itself. Reminds me a lot of Orin Swift or Michael David.

Drinking great now, but Needs 3 years in the bottle to get all that bell pepper out, and even become smoother.
I paired it with lamb chops.

15.6% ABV, but not really noticeable.
