Vinum Cellars The Insider Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
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. The Insider is best with grilled or roasted meat such as a thick cut Porterhouse or Rib Eye, served with garlic mashed potatoes and English peas sautéed with chipollini onions. It will pair nicely with strongly seasoned fish and soy infused dishes such as grilled sea bass in a mushroom soy glaze. For a vegetarian option, look to eggplant Moussaka.
