Natalie's Score: 91/100

Full-bodied, smooth and elegant with Old World restraint. Not fruit forward. More structure and earthy notes than big berry flavours. Decant 1 hour and enjoy with a rare steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: roast beef with root vegetables, baron of beef with red wine sauce and scalloped potatoes, flat iron steak on the bbq.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Perhaps my favorite CS in the LCBO's feature on California CSaugignons. Lovely cassis aromas with more lifted aromas. No shyness here with full richness and power without giving up any complexity. Could be aged 2-5 years or drank tomorrow.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied rich California Cab in all it's fruit forward glory. Aside from prominent jammy blackberries and stewed plums flavours, a nice grphite minerality, anise and dark chocolate nuances come through as well. Pair with bacon-blue cheese gourmet beef burgers. Tasted June 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Charles Wetmore Wente Vineyards (2014) is and elegant, structured mostly Cabernet Sauvignon wine. The wine blend is actually 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Petit Sirah and 5% Malbec. This robust Californian Cabernet was matured for 20 months in new French oak, American and Slovenian oak barrels. Nice, lingering smoky finish on this wine. Decant for an hour prior to serving it with a filet mignon or hold in cellar for another five years. - Community Wine Reviews
