This is a Cabernet from Washington state. It actually also has 4% Merlot. Purple in color, a bit of ruby at the rim. Opaque and bright. The nose is very nice with black cherries, plums, some baking spice and a slight liqueur note. Full bodied but not over blown. On the palate, this has juicy black cherries, plums, slight blueberries with some underlying char and a bit of minerality. Good balance. Nice finish. This is drinking well now but should go another seven to ten years. It will work on its own but probably better with food. It went well with pasta but would work well with roasted chicken or even a burger.
