Tried Blackstone Cabernet for the first time. Heard a lot about the nice QPR of Blackstone label. Frankly, I was disappointed. This wine had no distinct nose. Was very hot on the palate. I decanted and let sit for about an hour, and it did not seem to open. It was a 2 glasser, that is it got better after the first glass. Will not make its way into my decanter again.

This California Cabernet is neither alluring nor repulsive on the nose (boring). It has a well into medium concentration and body, with plenty of dark fruit, a noticeable bit of toasted oak (although with an added on characteristic), and traces of black licorice. It also possesses a noticeably sharp alcohol note, has an unusual creamy (creme brulee according to their descriptor), somewhat sweet, almost tutti frutti characteristic to it. I might buy this again on special but certainly won't seek it out.

I used to love Blackstone Cab, but now as soon as I removed the foil I knew I was in for a different experience. The rubber cork gave my shivers! After decanting for about 30min I decided to indulge and my predictions were true. Very flat on the palate with hints of its once lovely complexity. I hope they go back to real corks so this beauty can show its true colors again!

Winemaker Notes: Grapes from Monterey County enhance spicy, peppery fruit; Sonoma County adds richness and complexity, while Napa Valley fruit provides depth and concentration to the final blend of our Cabernet Sauvignon. This varietal displays a rich ruby hue with aromatics that unleash a fusion of pepper, exotic spices and ripe plum. The robust palate is well-balanced with appealing flavors of raspberry, black cherry, ripe plum and rich spices. It is wonderfully complex, with tantalizing nuances of dark berry aromas and rich smoky oak. The wine is very rich, with firm tannins, vibrant plum fruit and nice oak integration on the finish. Serve this wine confidently with a roast, steak, hamburgers, lamb, pork ribs, pheasant, venison or hard and firm cheeses.

Our Blackstone Winemaker's Select Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant violet color, an invitingly complex wine full of deep blackberry, plum, and spice on the nose and a rich mouthfeel, rounded by vanilla and roasted oak scents, and a finish that's long and smooth. The Malbec and Cabernet Franc within the blend add particularly soft, round texture and mature length, as well as fuller, riper flavors. This Cabernet would excel with any manner of beef, a hearty risotto, and alongside a creamy bread pudding. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
