2010 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Cabernet is deep ruby/opaque in color. It has an excellent nose of crushed Satsuma plum, wet forest floor, roasted hazelnuts, mocha and lilacs. On the palate, the entry is deep and brooding with Italian cherry preserves, wet shale, sage, violets and boysenberry and blackberry. It has a long and lingering finish and will show more layers with aeration. It will pair well with Kobe beef, aromatic cheese and fine Belgian chocolate.
