Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The New World Cab that just can't stop exceeding expectations. This full-throttle bottle is a true Dark Horse original. Bringing together a carefully selected collection of California grapes, winemaker, Beth Liston has found a way to balance big fruit flavors with deep, dry, mouthwatering notes. An instant hit, our Cab loves any party or holiday gathering where there's a chance to mingle with all kinds of tastes. A velvety smoothness to those firm tannins. The deliciously dry "big tannin" feel paired with fruity aromatics. Amplified layers of dark berry fruit. Hints of dark chocolate and espresso. If you're not using red wine to make your burgers yet, this daring flavor-bomb might just change your life. With big, lush waves of jammy fruit and black cherry, our Cab turns up the umami in sturdy mains like steaks, chops, shepherd's pie, and anything else you happen to sit down to.
This medium- to full-bodied wine leads with spicy smoky oak in the aromas and pours more oak over the ripe cherry and black-plum flavors. It's not a bad choice for those with a taste for wood, and has a smooth, lightly tannic texture.
