$25, 5 stars, 91 points, cabernet sauvignon, california, Naked Wines, Napa
The label says it’s a red wine blend. Let’s see if I can discern the grapes. First off- it’s deep ruby which rules out Pinot Noir. Number two- it runs 14.5% ABV even though the legs are quite watery in the glass. The nose is of medium intensity and I get aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry, smoke, licorice, chocolate, black plum, and a grape note. The palate is dry, with high acidity and high tannins. The alcohol is evident and the body is medium (+). The flavors are medium intensity and mirror the nose, although there is a black tea component on the mid palate. The tannins are searing on the finish which is decent in length. Overall a tasty wine that I believe will age well for another 5-7 years. As for the varietals- here goes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and perhaps Merlot would be my guess. 91 points for this rather big red that can be had for $25. 5 stars. ps. it needs a big, juicy steak. Salut….
