Rosati Family Wines 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

95 Points - DOUBLE GOLD - San Francisco International Wine Competition

TASTING NOTES

This wine shows a fine, deep red/black color with harmonious and
lifted aromas. Blueberry notes have evolved to darker blackberry
notes and the aromatics of this wine retain their bright fruit
expression but are reaching the “tipping point” between fruit and the
complex of aromas of aging. The wine’s entry on the palate is rich,
with a distinctive tannin structure and texture reminiscent of dark
chocolate, with flavors of black plums. Danelle Rosati recommends
decanting beforehand. Serve with Brizoles Greek Style Grilled Steak..
