2015 Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Chris's Cuvee

New Release!

Notes of fresh cassis, currants, and dark chocolate make up the aromatic profile. This is underlined by fresh blueberry notes, and a crème brûlée middle palate. The extended finish is well integrated between natural grape and soft oak tannin. Good to drink now and will cellar well for the next 15-25 years.
