Tasting Note: Underestimating Pennsylvania Cabernet Sauvignon, are you?

Drink this bottle as an experience of what cabernet sauvignon can achieve in Pennsylvania in the hands of Waltz Vineyards.

Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has a medium-plus-intensity nose of blackberry, black cherry and black plum with hints of licorice, leather and clove baking spice.

On the palate the dry, full-bodied cabernet sauvignon has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by slightly-grippy, medium-plus tannin and just-ripened black fruit ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.

There is concentration and balance along the length of the taste.

Bottle Note: Hot summer days in 2015 led to optimum ripeness and dark fruit notes in our cabernet sauvignon. Extended maceration time produced mature tannins and a long, velvety finish. Hand harvested in small batches and aged 24 months in French oak. 398 cases produced. Jan and Kimberly Waltz.
