Cocoa-berry aromas open the nose, complemented by toasty oak spices, plum, cherries and a touch of smoke and violets. Flaunting California’s famously friendly nature, the palate unfolds with succulent blackberry and Bing cherry flavors, accented by varietal notes of black pepper and espresso. Rich, dark chocolaty tannins escort the vibrant fruit into long finish.
Pair this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled meats, sausage pasta or poultry in a rich sauce.
