WINE OF THE MONTH: OCTOBER 2014

 

Vampire Cabernet Sauvignon

WHY I LIKE IT:
Full-bodied with blackberry and dark cherry aromas, with just the right amount of oak flavors leading to a lingering finish. Classic, small-lot fermentations, followed by aging with both European and American oak, gives full expression to the rich varietal flavors in this wine. Judiciously blended with small amounts of Merlot for softness, and Syrah for added structure, our Cabernet displays ripe flavor character and a lovely aroma that will continue to develop with additional time in bottle. A Perfect Complement to Any Fine Meal Shared by Two Mortals at Summer's Twilight!
