Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

Ripe currant, leather and black pepper layer with flavors of fresh boysenberries and red fruits, wrapped up in bold mouthwatering structure. Sweet oak notes and rich coffee tones round out the finish. This big wine with well-supported tannins can be enjoyed early but will cellar for years to come. Pair with red meat and marinara dishes.

Vibrant, refreshing and tight, with currant and cherry flavors, nicely shaded with gentle hints of wet loamy earth and spice. -hs
