So who was Kilroy? Answer that, and you’ll be well-rewarded with this Cabernet Sauvignon from Rocland Estate. Fleshy and full-bodied, this wine shows a deep, opaque well-extracted purple color. Aromas and flavors focus on all the Cabernet Sauvignon characters, including blackberry, cassis (black currant), and blueberry. French and American oak were used, but none of American oak’s typical aggressiveness is here, and the oak is beautifully integrated with the fruit. Tannins are supple and derived from fruit (rather than stems or barrels). Sweet fruit is intense but not over-the-top, and although alcohol is hefty (14.5%), the wine shows good balance.
Serve cool to the touch in Bordeaux style glasses (tall tulip-shaped). Lots of foods go with this one: roast Cornish hen glazed with dark jam and some of the wine; prime rib; grilled or smoked meats; legume dishes with assertive flavors; bleu cheeses; dark chocolate.
