Today is National Wine Day, and for the celebration, this wonderful Cabernet, will do the trick.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Great fruity nose of vanilla, oak, figs, blackberries, blueberries, cloves, cherries, earth, currants, strawberries, licorice, metals, minerals and white pepper.
Full-bodied and extremely smooth and elegant , with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cherries, earth, pencil lead, oak, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, Cola, mint, chocolates, espresso, tobacco, cocoa, beef jerky and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine-grained tannins, black pepper and cola.
What a great California Cabernet. Smooth, elegant and well-balanced, and enjoyable by itself or with a big piece of steak.
Needs 2 hours to open up properly.
Drinking very nicely now, but will be so much better in a couple of years in the bottle.
Grapes where hand-picked, hand sorted and aged in small Oak barrels.
14.9% alcohol by volume.
