Profile

"2016 marks the seventh vintage of Ultraviolet Cabernet Sauvignon, by winemaker Samantha Sheehan of POE and Mommenpop.

Samantha's Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays have always been inspired by the wines of France, thus her California Cabernet project deserves a fitting title.

Ultraviolet is an homage to the California climate where Sam grew up, and a pure expression of fruit ripened under the California sun," from the producer.

Look

Intense ruby red with a brick rim.

Smell

"Fruit forward and somewhat jammy, this wine is a crowd pleaser to be sure, but there's also a backbone of sweet smoke and earth to go along with great structure and mouthfeel," www.winestyr.com

Taste

"Ripe notes of blueberry compote, plums, fresh violet petals and currant, a round mouthfeel with hints of blackberry bramble, black pepper and Bordeaux-like earthiness, with bright acidity and velvety, persistent tannin," from the winery.

Pairing

The richness of port wine braised beef short ribs will pair well with this tannic Cabernet Sauvignon.
