2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Adelaida District
Suave and immediately engaging, the wine’s ruby gemstone color draws you close to aromas of soft blackberries, with complementary notes of allspice, vanilla bean, and sweet mocha. Rounded textures characterize the mouthfeel with moderate tannins, and the persistence of ripe berry flavors extend through the long finish with impressions of mocha and vanilla bean. Enjoy now through 2025.
Food Pairing: Chipotle burger with avocado salsa; balsamic glazed flank steak rolls; vegetable Ratatouille; venison stew with sautéed porcini mushrooms
2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, Viking Estate Vineyard
This wine is immediately accessible with the succulence of ripe blackberries lightly dusted with fresh ground peppercorns, faintly hinting of blackcurrant leaf, all complemented by mouth-coating flavors of creamy Swiss chocolate, vanilla, and cedarwood shavings. Reflecting the vintage this is a current drinking wine that speaks of its breeding yet can be enjoyed in the near term. Drink now through 2025.
Food Pairing: Pan-seared Filet Mignon with green peppercorn crème fraîche; Broiled chicken thighs with smoked paprika and ratatouille
