Great Value!!! Full of flavorful berries, light, smooth.
65% Cab Sav., 14% Syrah, 9% Cab franc, 2% Merlot, 2% Teroldego. Don't know what the Teroldego is at all but this is a very nice elegant blend. The mouthfeel is really exquisite, it goes rom far and wide acroos the palatte The nice ripe berry, slight toasty oak note,s and the well balanced tannin and acidity really kick this wine into the level above many, especially for under 20$ We got this one on sale for $13.99 and the mix was the primary intrigue. It paid off. I hope Blackstone can continue to be reliable maker.
A crisp, tasteful wine, would have been 5/5 however I personally did not enjoy the sharp/sour aftertaste. Otherwise, a wonderful wine that my guests enjoyed very much.
External Reviews for Blackstone Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
The Blackstone 2006 Sonoma Reserve Rubric exhibits a dark, inky black hue, displaying aromas of black cherry, blackberry jam, cassis, cigar box, and coffee, with a hint of toasted spice.This stunning blend carries layered flavors of ripe, jammy black fruit with undercurrents of caramel, vanilla, coffee, and varietal herbaceousness. This is a concentrated wine with a rich mouthfeel and silky texture. Fine, supple tannins provide a lingering finish perfect for pairing with braised short ribs, herb-coated lamb, or dark chocolate souffle.
