This vintage of the California Cabernet shows aromas of plums, cranberries, allspice and dried ginger with barrel notes of cedar cigar box. The blend of 88% Cabernet, 9% Merlot and a splash of Sangiovese and Zinfandel truly is reflective of its flavors. The dark, jammy core drinks of boysenberry pie, black cherry preserves and currants. Medium in weight, the wine shows silky tannins and just a touch of barrel spice. "This has to be one of the best value Cabernets on the market. It’s rich and ripe in blackberry and currant flavors, with smooth tannins and a fine edge of acidity to brighten the fruit." 88 Points Wine Enthusiast
Pair this versatile Cabernet Sauvignon with everything from burgers, ribs, lasagne, or chicken Parmesan to smoked Gouda of cheddar cheese.
