Australia, Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River, Red Wine, Western Australia

Opened a couple of days ago and followed the evolution. Deep dark ruby red color. Blackberry and blueberry dominate the nose with some cedar plank. Very fruit forward with black- and blueberry again. Good freshness and purity of fruit, but a fairly simple wine that lacks the layers and earthiness I’m looking for. Finishes OK. Nothing transcendental, but definitely serviceable.

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.
