One of the best $14 cabs you will taste, and from Texas to boot. Nice nose of sour cherry, tobacco, currants. On the palate, red and dark fruits, sour cherry, spice, and a nice funkiness. Finishes with soft tannins and a great acidic lift. Glad to have more, this is aging nicely and should get better.
Popped and poured. Nice nose, leather, pencil shavings, black fruits, and a floral hint. On the palate, lush black and red fruits, leather, cedar. Finish comes off as acidic and a little bit green but very well balanced with decent tannic grip and nice length. Very little appraent alcohol, listed at 12.5% on the bottle. I might be underrating this a tad. This was given to me by friend who said "You have to try this". The last wine from this friend was Little Penguin Shiraz, so I took it with a grain of salt. I am definitely a buyer of this wine as a cellar defender and I will probably age a couple of bottles to see how the develop. With the nice balance here this could develop into something very special in a few years time. Drink or hold and at the price, strongly recommended.
