Aromas of black peppercorn, cranberries and blackberries lead in this dark, bold Cab. A wave of juicy currants breaks on the palate followed by hints of violets, earth, cloves and bay leaf. Supported by solid tannins, the flavor lingers like a long, smooth ride on a perfect wave.
This crowd pleaser is great at a party with spicy meatballs or strong cheeses, but its equally comfortable with dinner for one or two with steak, lamb, fire-roasted vegetables or hearty lasagna.
