Natalie's Score: 92/100

Mocha rich on the nose with aromas of fleshy blackberries and plums and chocolate. Round and layered with lots of length on the finish. This full-bodied red wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon but also includes a splash of Cabernet Franc grapes in the blend. Decant 1-2 hours. This would be a terrific dinner party wine or gift wine. Give it to yourself!

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pork tenderloin, lamb with rosemary.
