This opaque and almost black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Kendall Jackson opens with an inviting mild black currant and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, savory and shows off its fruit. The flavor profile is a tasty mild blackberry with an interesting peppermint flavor nicely intertwined. The finish is dry and its moderate oak tannins are pretty sticky and linger for some time. I would pair this friendly Cab with a Colorado lamb chop.
Well-defined currants, blackberry, blueberry and cassis make for abundant fruit on the attack. Sturdy, complex tannins balance the acidity throughout. Notes of smoke, mocha, cedar and lots of rich oak round off the long, earthy, heady finish.
