Tasting notes

Wanna whole lotta love? Kingpin is brawny powerful Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon: (black fruit and iron) with a pinch of Merlot (chocolate and cherry liqueur) and Petit Verdot (violets, game, spice cake). Intensely concentrated fruit aromas of blackberry, wild cherry, black plum, black currant and cigar box and cedar lead to a palatial eruption of chocolate covered black fruit, deep forest and stony earth. Will develop for many years and last well past the end of the world.
