Tasting Notes
Black raspberry and cassis dominate the nose of this garnet colored Cabernet with a whiff of coriander, black violets, orange peel and fresh cut sirloin rubbed with a pinch of white pepper. Plum and black cherry enter the mix on a medium weight palate with fine grain tannins that possess a hint of dust accompanied by black olive, a scraping of graphite and bolstered by a hit of dry Chambord… excellent with a grilled well-marbled steak.  – Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
