Sourced from the Texas High Plains, this aged Cabernet still exhibits some lively ruby color and enticing vanilla bean aromas. There is moderate color loss, but not unexpected due to the age. Cherry and blueberries are the notes that are holding well as you sip and enjoy this wine.  The tannins are still quite firm and the cork was still intact, as well! Labeled “Big Red”, this wine does demand a big bold meaty pairing to do it justice. We were pleasantly surprised how well this one still held up over time and were pleased with the overall structure. We always enjoy sampling any Cabernet Sauvignons and this one did not disappoint over time.
