(From 2012 Vintage) Ample at its core with flavors of cherry flambé, Oaxacan chocolate and roasted hazelnut. Tremendous depth leads to a long and unstinting finish.
Cannonball 05 Cabernet A full-bodied, well-balanced wine with a thick texture palate that echoes fresh black fruit flavors. Velvety firm tannins lead to a long complex finish that screams for another splash....CANNONBALL! Introducing a brand new California Cabernet Sauvignon sourced mainly from Sonoma Valley's Dry Creek Vineyards. The wine has been crafted by master winemaker, Dennis Hill. This is Dennis Hill's first wine since leaving Blackstone. The Splash Features: • Wine style is big and bold, yet balanced. Tannins support the classic Cabernet structure with a long read more...complex finish of blackberry fruit typical of the Dry Creek area. • Cannonball Cabernet delivers a quality found in wines three times the price!
