What We’re Drinking – Cornerstone Cellars Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

The color is a slightly translucent deep red. The nose is redolent with black fruits, with high-toned hints of cranberry. The palate is huge and round, throwing out plums and black cherries, backed by milk chocolate and black tea. Tannins are sweet. This is a big, round, fruit-forward, crowd-pleasing mouthful of wine. Drink with medallions of beef. Highly Recommended. 92 points. DBH
