Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Category: Red Wine
Location: LCBO Vintages
Country: United States of America
Region: Livermore Valley, California
Format: 750 ml
Producer: Wente Vineyards
Alcohol: 13.5% Alcohol/Vol.
Smooth wine with some sweet fruit but it’s contained by the acidity and being under 14% alcohol. Score: 90/100.
Tasting Note: Opaque ruby in colour with good acidity, a medium intense nose, round tannin & a long length on the finish. This wine features: Plum, Bing cherries, mulberry, blueberry, cocoa, cloves, cinnamon & vanilla.
Interesting Point: Originally reviewed 2014 vintage in 2018, and the price is still the same today. That’s unprecedented!
Pairings: Drink this now or in the next 3 – 5 years on its own or pair it with beef back ribs.
My Opinion: Recommended
