In the glass, this Cab Sauv from the Knights Valley AVA of Sonoma has a thick blackish purple core that bleeds slowly into pretty lipstick pink edges….
A sniff throws a white pepper left hook before some sweeter notes of oak and raspberry show up to the fight———–> When I stick my nose in the glass for a revisit I’m inundated with a perfumey plum thing that knocks my socks off!!!!
The palate starts intense with black fruit before a bing cherry kick kinda brightens things up a bit ————-> The mid-palate shows some grip with round tannins that give way to more of the sweet raspberries that I got on the nose before anise and cocoa take this guy home with a 90 second finish…
Happy New Year y’all!!! This Cab from Optima Winery is SURE to help you ring in 2019 right ———-> With a 45 minute decant, this thing is SINGING….. That said, I’d recommend buying a few for your cellar also as it’s only going to get better with age!!!
