Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – Discovery Heights

Our wine tonight is the Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Discovery Heights .

Vintage 2017.

Sonoma County.

Decanted 30 minutes.

Dark inky blackish in color with a bright ruby rim.

Nose of black cherry jam, blackberry, black plums, black licorice, black pepper, pipe tobacco, and pencil lead.

Medium plus body with finely grained tannins, balanced acidity and long cascading legs.

Dry and smooth on the palate, notes of black cherry, black currant, dark plum, vanilla, and espresso, with a lingering finish of baking spices, light cedar, and peppercorn.

Mouthfeel is medium light for a Cabernet Sauvignon, though this wine currently drinking very well.

14.2% ABV

Winery Escapades – Jen-Nis Wine Marketing score of 89 points.

A high quality smooth drinking Cabernet Sauvignon.
