A waft of sea air and old books needs to be lifted out of the glass, but once past it the fun begins. This blend of two cabernets is all about the darkest of the dark (hence the name): blackberry jam, mocha, clove, and all the other flavors that make you want to curl up with the whole bottle. Pair with the stinkiest cheeses you can find, especially blue ones.
