2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
The nose offers inviting smoky oak notes that weave through vine-ripened blackberry, tempting that first sip. A velvety entry and mouthfeel reveal deep, opulent flavors balanced with supple tannins and integrated vanillin oak. The palate provides a lush blend of red currant, boysenberry, and black raspberry, with traces of Bing cherry, mocha, and fine herbs appearing near the finish. This stunning wine is delicious now, so if you want to appreciate it as it ages, be sure to stock up. It goes down too easy to resist opening now.
Pair with a juicy, medium rare chateaubriand with béarnaise, or herb stuffed pork chops with a side of wild rice pilaf.
