2020 Majestic Elk
Cache Creek Vineyards
The nose offers layers of tempting aromas of rich cassis and brambly blackberry woven with hints of spicy cedar, tobacco and toasty oak. From the first sip, the palate is filled with mouthwatering yet plush flavors — Bing cherry, boysenberry, black raspberry, red currant and dark plum — laced with a lovely minerally saline essence. Traces of leather and loamy earth add interest while integrated mocha-tinged oak and bright acidity lend balance and depth. As the flavors fuse and linger, you start to long for the next sip.
Enjoy this gorgeous wine with herb-crusted pork tenderloin with red currant sauce, or braised short ribs in a Cabernet reduction sauce served over garlic-infused mashed potatoes.
