Vinum Cellars The Insider Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
This big cab has a deep, dark plum color with purple hues with nice viscosity illustrating the dense weight and alcohol percent. The aromas are classic Bordeaux notes such as blueberry, huckleberry, pencil lead and cassis notes. The palate is ripe and rich with supple, silky black cherry and blueberry flavors. The mid palate showcases the ripe fruit and integrated French oak. Food Pairing: This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs very well with virtually any grilled meat from seasoned, spit roasted chicken and slow cooked pork such as Carnitas, it is perhaps best with a grilled New York or Flat Iron steak and frites (french fries). That said a steak salad with a mesclun of lettuces and roasted beets will do well for lunch. This wine is also just a really nice glass of Cab on its own as it is varietal and generous in its fruit, acid and tannin balance.
