Deep, dark brick red to blood plum in color. On the nose, this Cabernet offers a seamless blend of crème de cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves, charry meat, and blackberry pie along with suggestions of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice, and vanillin. It is rich and satisfying with chocolate brownie, yogurt, molasses, brown sugar and rhubarb notes presented in perfect balance on the palate. Try pairing with cowboy-cut, grilled rib eye steak with béarnaise sauce, and lamb chops with balsamic reduction. Also delicious with a charcuterie platter with smoked duck breast, dry-cured pork sausage, figs, pecans and sliced apple.
