2015 J Bookwalter Protagonist Cabernet Sauvignon
I am so stoked about this wine I almost don't know where to begin! Bookwalter Winery has created an amazing wine in the 2015 Protagonist Cabernet Sauvginon. While not the most fragrant wine you'll ever experience, the flavors are the superstars here! Dark cherry, graphite and a touch of sulfur smoke greet you warmly and are a stark contrast of the flavors leap from the glass. This wine feels nice and tight and flavors of black berry, mineral and black currant dance around and introduce a finish that is welcoming and absolutely fulfilling. Smartly balanced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (95%), Merlot (5%), Syrah (3%) and Cabernet Franc (2%), this wine has a beautiful medium-to-dark purple color and it is delicious now; I suspect will be just as wonderful in another 10+ years. Beautiful!
