The Critic Cabernet Sauvignon

Soft and approachable nose with hints of dark fruit and a touch of vanilla. Flavors of Bing cherry and caramel on the palate, followed by a smooth round finish that lingers with a touch of currant and spice. A versatile wine that can be enjoyed with something as simple as a hamburger or as decadent as grilled lamb.

The typewriter keys on the label certainly amused this critic, who jots down her notes longhand. This easygoing red aged ten months in 50% American and 50% French oak, then rested in bottle for an additional month before release. Cocoa, coffee nibs, and dark fruit make a gentle impression on the nose, and the palate is plush and juicy, with notes of white pepper and earth bathed in plum liqueur.
