2017 Patriot Cabernet
The Wine: Our 2017 Patriot Cabernet Sauvignon was aged exclusively in new American oak from Missouri, bottled March 17th, 2020, and bottle-aged for an additional five months. Dark in color with beautiful garnet edges, this wine bursts with aromas of dark berries, cassis, toasty vanilla, anise, and cocoa. Let the wine open and the wine becomes even more complex with aromatics of black cherry, caramelized marshmallow, dark cocoa, and graham crackers. This full-bodied Cabernet has lush tannins and the finish lingers.
Pairing: Pairings for this wine are endless. With the combination of anise, dark cherry, cassis, graham crackers, and dark chocolate this is the perfect wine to pair with dessert. Anyone with a sweet tooth would certainly enjoy this wine with s’mores! As a bold Cabernet with chewy tannins and layers of flavor, you can always pair this with a meat dish too. We recommend a buttery prime rib, aged gouda or parmesan, a BBQ bacon burger, or grilled portabella with a balsamic glaze for those who don’t eat meat.
