2019 WENTE VINEYARDS Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 75cl (Alameda County, USA)
Style - Bold
Grapes - 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 9% Petit Sirah, 4% Barbara
Tasting - Dark cherries and oak on the nose. On the palate, luscious fruit and a mouthwatering acidity dominate the scene, leaving a smoky aftertaste.
FYI: Oak a bit like tea bags decrease in flavour the longer you use them. Here the mix is 40% new with the rest being second fill (I.e. were new last year) - this gives the punchy smokey, sweet spice vanilla flavours you can find in this wine.
