Our #5 Red Wine from our May 21, 2016 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.

Rich and robust aromas of blackberry, bing cherry, and black currants are accented with sage, dried herbs, espresso bean, and dark chocolate. Secondary aromas of hints of cigar box and vanilla fill the nose. Bold and full-bodied on the palate, this wine offers flavors of cherry, dried berries, and cassis with subtle mocha and truffle nuances. A firm but smooth texture of pure blackberry fruit and coffee brings this balanced wine a well-rounded finish.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a nose of crème de cassis, plum preserves, cigar boxes, and garrique with dried herbs and sandalwood in the undercurrent. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers tons of ripe black fruits, licorice and dried herbs with a chewy frame and good balance.
