Smith and Hook Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


SKU 8678800090


A bouquet bursting with notes of mocha, coffee, toasted oak, vanilla, black currant, and licorice. Expansive flavors and the round viscous mouthfeel backed with concentrated tannic structure carry through to the smooth, lavish finish. The robust flavors are a great complement to braised short ribs, mushroom stroganoff, or a charred Gruyère burger.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a big but balanced expression of Cabernet that is ready to drink now. Layers of black cherry, caramel, vanilla, smoke and crushed black rocks show on the lavish nose. The palate's chalky texture is immediately apparent, with vibrant acidity that carries forth a rich crème de cassis flavor and finishes on roasted coffee and milk chocolate.
