Silent Auction Top Item: OS Winery 2009 Elephant Mountain Cabernet (Magnum)
Yes, you heard us right - RTS just got word about an exceptional wine we're adding to our Silent Auction:
2009 Elephant Mountain Cabernet (Magnum)
Intense, dark ruby/purple in the glass, this latest O•S bottling has vibrant aromas of blackberries, cassis, minerals and forest. The texture develops from a round, soft attack to a more chewy midpalate and to a powerfully structured finish with rich full tannins. There are flavors of crushed black fruits with a touch of toasty oak, and a deliciously savory finish.
