Crafted of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Lagrein, the J. Wilkes 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the esteemed Paso Robles Highlands District on California’s Central Coast. On the nose, look for classic aromas of blackberry, juicy cassis, ripe plum, and hints of toasted oak, violets and cocoa. The palate offers well-integrated flavors of ripe blackberry, dark-roasted coffee and chocolate with fine tannins and a long, fruit-filled finish. Try pairing the J. Wilkes 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon with Tri-tip barbecue with BBQ beans and garlic bread.
