The wine was a deep red in the glass, almost purple. I didn’t notice any brown coloration, suggesting it was still a very young wine.
I noticed cherries on the nose and hints of earthy tobacco.
I felt this wine was very young and could open up nicely when decanted. It was very fruity. It had an initial finish of spices that transformed into a more vanilla flavor afterwards.
The wine was nicely smooth, but was still a dry wine.
Rating: I liked it
Why: I enjoyed the change in the finish, from spices to vanilla.
Will you finish the bottle: Yes.
Best way to describe this wine to a non wine drinker: It’s breathing in that first breath of cold fall air while waiting for the school bus to arrive.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Bought from: Jewel-Osco
Price: $10.79 (on sale)
Paired with: Tombstone 5 cheese pizza
Wife’s rating: I liked it – but it was a bit too spicy at first.
