Muscardini
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon
, Sonoma Valley
Cassata Vineyards

Modern, Seductive & Full Bodied

Full-bodied with a deep red hue and flecks of purple, this wine boasts concentrated aromas of ripe berries, dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate, black tea, leather, tobacco, wild sage, fresh earth, and roasted nuts.  The palate is classic Cabernet with notes of ripe blackberry, fresh currants, dark plum and cherry are well-integrated with hints of balsamic, black trumpet mushrooms, and layers of rustic spice.  With its silky texture, supple tannins, firm structure and a lingering finish, this wine becomes more elegant, graceful, and complex as it opens up in the glass.

Displays a full tannin structure up front, yet finishes with a silky viscous texture. Drinks great now, and will easily go for a decade or more in your cellar.

Pairs well with grilled steaks, Osso Bucco, braised meats, dark chocolate desserts, and cigars by the fireplace.
