Tasting Note

Any AIR RAID quarterback would be proud to sling this WSU VII Cabernet Sauvignon, dark-fruit cherry bomb, by REININGER. Intense scents of macerated black cherries, plum, blackberry and black currant line up at scrimmage with judicious oak and floral notes at wideouts. The snap delivers a balanced attack revealing an opulent texture, velvety tannins with vaulting acidity that elevates the brutish cherry, red-plum and dash of nimble cassis. Elegant floral-oak spice waltzes in perfect harmony, from goal line to goal line, with sumptuous black-cherry high stepping it to the house.
