Aromas of cigar box, black cherry, Toffifay, and raspberry truffles lead to flavors of blackberry, baker’s cocoa, ripe plum, and dusty tannins.

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Broadside Blackletter Cabernet Sauvignon is packed for performance. TASTING NOTES: This wine deftly combines power with style. Its aromas and flavors feature black fruit, tar, licorice, and oak. Put a ribeye on the grill and enjoy it. (Tasted: May 18, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
Deep and dark in the glass, this bottling from two appellations in Paso Robles shows earthy aromas of dried cherries, charred wood, dusty herbs and light licorice. There is heft to the thick palate, where a lush texture carries flavors of black plum, dark berry and peppery spice, with the acidity becoming quite apparent on the finish.
