If you hadn't told me this was 100% Cabernet, I would have never guessed that it was.
A beautiful nose of Alpine Strawberry and Star and Moon Watermelon dare you to plunge into this wine. Once you accept the dare, what an unexpected surprise. The wine is more restrained and focused than the nose would lead you to believe. The delicate almost ripe strawberries pairs beautifully with the understated savory watermelon fruit notes. And once that fruit is sorted on your palate, here comes this amazing bright acidity that brings brightness and focus. The reasonable alcohol (11.5 %) is just another reason to keep multiple bottles at the ready. I think it would pair great with fresh spring peas or asparagus.
