Master Sommelier Thomas Price is very proud to introduce 2010 Metropolitan Grill Cabernet Sauvignon, the fifth vintage of Metropolitan Grill Proprietary Cabernet Sauvignon, in collaboration with Winemaker Tom Glase of Balboa Winery.
Tasting Notes: Pure and expressive with vibrant red currant, raspberry and cassis. Accents of baking spice and blackberry pie, around a supple core of ripe cherry. Silky tannins frame the long finish.

Winemaking: Hand harvested grapes were sorted and then fermented in small open top stainless steel tanks. The cap was gently punched down two times per day.
