Cabernet Sauvignon, California, Napa, USA

Felt like something fruitier and dark and this fit the bill nicely. Popped and Poured. Nose is soaring out of the glass with chocolate, cassis liqueur, ripe plum, sandalwood and a hint of vanilla bean and pain grille. Color is a dark garnet red. The flavors are that of black currants, tobacco, leather, and dried herbs. Texture is smooth and velvety and finish long. Tannins seemed a touch bitter, but not to the extent that it gets distracting. Very solid wine and a real pleasure to drink. Certainly one of the best QPR Cabs from California considering the consistently high quality.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
