This ain’t half bad for a commercially produced California Cab Sauvignon
Tasting Note: Deep ruby in colour with good acidity, a medium+ intense nose, smooth tannin & a fairly long length on the finish. Wine features sweet plums, blueberry jam, black cherries, blackberries, espresso, vanilla and cloves.
Negatives: Has just enough jammy sweetness that makes it on the fence for me.
Pairings: Drink now or over the next couple of years on its own or pair it with mushroom, sautéed onions, cheese burger.
My Opinion: On the Fence
