Tara Bella Winery & Vineyards Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

A bold dry Cabernet Sauvignon that proudly expresses the terroir. The vineyard’s rich soil variations are clearly evident in the nose.  Deep aromas of forest floor and black pepper blend easily with milder aromas of dark chocolate, fresh spices and savory herbs.

Opening notes on the tongue are soft, with the tannins presenting as sour cherry and plum skins. A warm spice undertone then leads you to a sweet blackberry essence with a juicy mixed fruit bouquet. The finish is warm and long. This wine is in its prime but will continue to mature

A highly delectable wine with moderate alcohol content and balanced natural acidity, this is an excellent food wine. You could open it this evening or lay it down for a decade.
