"The aroma is of sweet black currants, berry jam and white flowers. A hint of spicy aniseed. The palate is medium bodied and sweet fruited. The structure has moderate acidity and soft tannins on the finish.'
Why did I name a Cabernet Evil?
"Dan (Philips) and I were frustrated about institutional attitudes directed towards wine in some quarters. It seemed that wine was categorized as dangerous and harmful, especially by the bureaucracy of the US FDA administration. Why are fire arms, drugs and alcohol bunched together? It seems like an incongruous and very dangerous combination. Well, we thought, why not state the obvious? If they think that wine is dangerous, why not call it Evil and get right to the point? We also wanted to create an identity for a Cabernet ( Evil ) and a Chardonnay ( Pure Evil ) wine that we wanted to make. Cabernet and Chardonnay are the benchmarks for classic wine expressions, yet, by some, they are considered cliche and trite. Well, we thought again, why not come right to the point and make Cabernet and Chardonnay wines called Evil? You think that they are Evil? Well, here they are, nice and Evil for you! We also wanted the wines to be pure and simple. No fancy tricks, fancy oak, just pure, clean and simple. Jeff (Mr) Keedy's lovely design for the label captured the idea perfectly. A visual deception, a label, which can be identified and understood from any angle conveying a message about wines, that can be understood and enjoyed from any angle." ~Winery notes Chris Ringland- Wine Maker
