Country: United States
Appearance: Dark ruby purple core lightening to medium intensity at the rim with moderate staining on the glass. Aroma: Aromatic black fruit of cherry and blackcurrant jam, baking spice, dried leaf and sweet tobacco. Palate: Full bodied with bright black cherry, blackcurrant and berry fruit with an underpinning of oak barrel accents on entry. The mid palate shows continued fruit with savory herbal notes, mint and a hint of violet. The finish is clean, long and layered with lingering dark fruit surrounded by soft chewy tannins balanced by crisp acidity and subtle floral notes. Cabernet Sauvignon pairs nicely with foods high in fat and protein, including steak, duck, and game. It's a great complement to hearty stews, ribs, and dark, rich sauces.
