Tasting Notes
A well defined cooler vintage Cabernet Sauvignon showing a nice ruby color with aromatics of pronounced black currant, plum, cherry, sandalwood, and a mild background blend of eucalyptus, spice, dried roses and a hint of smoky earth. Easy tannins combine with the elegant flavors mirroring the nose for a graceful palate presentation accentuating the currant and cherry with a hint of cola nut and vanilla, that quickly evolves to beautiful lingering kirsch melded with a touch of milk chocolate and a sprinkling of spice. This Cab is not the boisterous seat at the dinner party. Rather it is the captivating, intriguing, humble guest that you want to stay the night. -Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
