This pure (unblended) Cabernet wears a medium dark robe of garnet, while yielding aromas of black cherries and red currants. On the palate, it presents flavors of both black cherries and red raspberries, red plum & tobacco. Cabernet Sauvignon’s natural affinity for oak aging allows subtle accents of vanilla & spice to notably complement the fruit. It shows off its nice balance of acidity & tannins as it smoothly completes the medium long finish with just a hint of rose petals.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS: While absolutely perfect for casual quaffing & appreciating the varietal, this puppy is easily sophisticated enough for the most elegant of sit-down dinners or enjoying a summer backyard grilling of most any red meats. From Chateau Briand to Beef Wellington, as well as that grilled Porterhouse or ribeye steak, this wine will shine! Hearty stews and game meat also meld well. (NOTE: fattier, richer or higher protein dishes subdue the normally higher tannin levels in Cab, allowing more of the true varietal flavor to be noted.)
