Week 1, Wednesday, Wine No. 1

This is such an approachable Cabernet. It’s simple and well made. The color is a dark ruby color. Aromas of blueberries and black fruit, spicebox and vanilla, followed by a bit of dusty herbs. It is medium bodied and barely dry in the mouth with a full spectrum of flavors: dark berries, blueberries, plum, herbs, cocoa, and some gentle earthiness. Tannins were firm. Oak emerged on the medium finish. Nice wine, decent value. Could live in the bottle for another 5-7 years.

$19.99 widely available
