WE 92pts. - According to the Wine Enthusiast: A beautiful Cabernet. Pretty tannic now, so if you drink it, decant and have with a rich oily meats and cheeses. But the heart of black cherries, and cassis, and the overall balance, enable this wine to develop ove the next 6-8 years. Tasting Notes - With deep ruby color, this Cabernet opens with inviting aromas of cherry, blackberry, raspberry, currant and hints of cedar and cocoa. Concentrated flavors of boysenberry, raspberry, red cherry and currant followed by notes of black pepper and vanilla in the long, smooth finish. A rich, full mouth feel with nicely balanced tannins and structure. This wine pairs well with grilled rib eye or pork chops, steak tartare, chorizo and seafood paella, wild mushroom and scallop risotto, smoked duck sausage over polenta, garlic marinated prime rib, braised lamb shanks, pork or beef barbequed ribs and hearty pasta dishes such as baked rigatoni.
