Smith and Hook Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Ranked the #7 Red Wine in our Oct. 7, 2016 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event
A bouquet bursting with notes of dark fruit and hints of spice leads into a structured palate of bright plum, boysenberry, and cherry. The initial fruitiness is complemented by alluring notes of vanilla cream and rich cacao. Expansive avors and balanced tannins carry through to the smooth, lavish finish. The robust flavors are a great complement to braised short ribs, mushroom stroganoff, or a charred gruyere burger.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a big but balanced expression of Cabernet that is ready to drink now. Layers of black cherry, caramel, vanilla, smoke and crushed black rocks show on the lavish nose. The palate's chalky texture is immediately apparent, with vibrant acidity that carries forth a rich crème de cassis flavor and finishes on roasted coffee and milk chocolate.
