Winemaker’s Notes: The essence of California captured in an intensely aromatic blend of wild rose and sweet pea with notes of lush strawberry and honeycomb.

Winemaker’s Notes: The color of this generous Cab is medium plum with light brick edges indicating an age worthy wine. The aromas are classic Bordeaux with cassis, black cherry and rich plum. On the palate, this wine is rich with deep plum and cassis notes with medium and integrated tannins from the French oak aging and is balanced well between the fruit and alcohol level. The wine finishes with intense berry fruit and is ripe with fresh bing cherry and boysenberry flavors displaying textbook Cabernet tannins which make the wine very appealing now, yet appropriate for long term cellaring and will reward patience.
The Insider is best with grilled or roasted meat such as a thick cut Porterhouse or Rib Eye, served with garlic mashed potatoes and English peas sautéed with chipollini onions. It will pair nicely with strongly seasoned fish and soy infused dishes such as grilled sea bass in a mushroom soy glaze. For a vegetarian option, look to eggplant Moussaka.
