Red wine lovers always feel blessed when they have a well aged Cabernet Sauvignon.  Mr. Time has treated this one well!  This wine is actually a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cabernet Franc.  Grapes sourced from the Russian River Valley of Sonoma can be like precious jewels to fans.  So, take your time and savor every sip of this bottle of wine.  Swirl your glass and just breathe in and enjoy the aroma of the cedar and vanilla bouquet that you’ll notice in this deeply colored wine.  It is quite dry, so be prepared as you enjoy the blackberry and cherry notes before the tannins round out the final flavor profile of this well aged cabernet.   Have a second glass and enjoy all over again!  This is a great full-bodied wine that reminds you what good red wine experiences are all about when the right grapes and the right year and the right oak barrel all come together! Cheers!
