2015 Kacaba Cab/syrah

My regular readers know I am a fan of Kacaba winery. Their people are enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. No trip to Niagara is complete for me without stopping by Kacaba. They are quietly doing their thing advancing the wine industry in Niagara! This wine is inky dark in color with a nice black cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with rich vibrant black cherries along with a bit of mocha. On the long finish the wine displays strong peppery notes, firm tannins and lively acidity. This is a bigger wine right now, for some it might be too young. If you prefer more finesse give it a couple years. Shelf life should be excellent for this wine, easily 5 years or more. Be sure and pair it with something hearty, I paired it with a striploin and it went perfectly. I would give it a solid 89, $29.95 at the winery if there are any left!
