Lion Tamer Cabernet Sauvignon is plush in texture with heady aromas of blackberries, black cherries and notes of freshly ground coffee. We add a touch of Malbec to the blend to develop a softness in the tannins, making this a wonderfully smooth and seamless wine. These mouthwatering tannins surround the palate, framing layered elements of bright blueberry, toasty oak and deliciously rich mocha. I find this vintage of Lion Tamer Cabernet is perfectly balanced, with well-integrated vanilla oak notes presenting on the lengthy, elegant finish

With 11% Petite Sirah and 8% Malbec in the blend, this is no shy undertaking. Robust, fleshy dark fruit flavors are enveloped by a voluptuous texture. Currant and toasted oak form the core of the midpalate as a hint of cigar comes into play on the finish.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Lion Tamer checks in as a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petite Sirah, and 8% Malbec and offers a rather one-dimensional style of cedary spice, red and black currants, and tobacco leaf. With medium body, a light, silky texture and good balance, it's nevertheless an enjoyable, charming wine that should be drunk over the coming 7-8 years.
